Ghillie Dhu at nightCatch up with conference participants at our evening social event. This will be a relaxed and informal evening with great food, drink and lively entertainment. Tartan dress is welcome! 

The evening will take place at Ghillie Dhu, a traditional Scottish venue set in a spectacular Grade A listed building and named after the gentle mountain spirit of Scottish folklore.

Originally a church, the building has been beautifully restored to showcase its traditional features, including high-vaulted ceilings and candlelit chandeliers, and has twice been awarded Best Small Venue at the Scottish Event Awards. 

Ghillie Dhu is conveniently located in the West End of Edinburgh's city centre, less than 10 minutes' walk from the Edinburgh International Convention Centre.

Attendance is optional, and tickets cost £60 + VAT. This includes drinks on arrival, food and drink, and entertainment (live music and highland dancers).
