EDUCT ANNUAL DINNER 2020
Join EDUCT for our most popular annual event at the historic Arts and Letters Club, with a delicious three course meal, cash bar, and plenty of opportunity to mingle and network with fellow University of Edinburgh alumni and guests.
Guest speaker: We are delighted to welcome David McClay, Philanthropy Manager, Library and University Collections, at the University of Edinburgh.
In his talk, entitled Past, Present and Future: Time Travelling with the Remarkable University Collections, David will convey something of the extent of the collections, the significance of some of the iconic pieces, the value of the collections for the research and teaching functions of the University, the donors who have played such a significant role in shaping some of the collections and, of course, the sheer beauty of some of the objects. For more information about David and his talk, read the article in our latest newsletter, that is coming to you within a week.
Dress Code: Business attire, Kilt, or cocktail dress.
Tickets: $90 for members + guests; $95 for non-member alumni + guests.
The price includes a three-course meal (salmon will be the main course. If you have dietary restrictions or do not want salmon, please let us know). The ticket price does not include wine or drinks. The Arts & Letters Club operates a cash bar.
Payment: Please pay in advance via one of two payment options:
