Event details

Where: Cloisters Bar, 26 Brougham Street, Edinburgh EH3 9JH
When: 6pm, Thursday 1st November

SPAB Scotland are coming to you!  We will be choosing a historic drinking establishments across the country for an informal meet up of SPAB members and associated friends. The aim of the event is to bring together SPAB Scotland members and non-members to discuss all things conservation over a pint, with the historic settings also sparking some discussion.  

On Thursday 1st November we will be meeting at Cloisters, 26 Brougham Street, Tollcross, Edinburgh from 6pm onwards.

We won't be reserving an area but will hopefully be able to commandeer an area, and look out for a SPAB membership leaflet on the table if you aren't familiar with any other SPAB members.  The event will be hosted by Dec Cahill, SPAB Scholar. 

This former parsonage sits next to St Michael and All Saints church, and was designed by Sir Rowand Anderson in 1878.  The neat plan fits into a tight site, and includes a former school, the parsonage and the church all in the same gothic style.  Category B listed, the full description can be found here.

Booking is not required, but please email us if you would like further information or to let us know you will be there!
