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 25th October we will be meeting at Gin71, 71 Renfield Street, Glasgow 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 Tom Hay, committee member, and Linda Shetabi, SPAB member.
Gin71 is housed in an impressive building originally built by Alfred Waterhouse in 1888 for the Prudential Insurance Company. The exterior of the building is especially fine, and built in the Flemish Rennaissence 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!
About SPAB Scotland
Members of the SPAB living and working in Scotland decided to form their own semi-autonomous group in 1995. Scotland has its own building traditions, architectural language and property laws, all of which are best dealt with locally. All members of the SPAB residing in Scotland are automatically members of SPAB Scotland.
