Coming events

Society meetings are held on Wednesdays and start at 7 p.m.

The principal ambition of our lecture programme is always to honour aspects of our cultural and social history through stories of art, archaeology, architecture and history relevant to Falkland but not necessarily local. We trawl our circles of friendship and acquaintance vigorously for speakers who are active in their chosen fields.

All are welcome – you don’t even have to be a member, just sympathetic to our aims! Just sign up using the form on our "Contact" page. All subscribers automatically receive the monthly Newsletter, with an invitation to the next Zoom meeting, and information about our other activities.

All talks subject to confirmation. It is likely that all or most will be by Zoom but in any event we shall be following the Scottish Government’s public health guidance.

Our principal themes for this season are "Anniversaries" and "Craftspeople and craftsmanship".

Our meeting for February: Rory Young on his life and work

Rory is a stone sculptor and ‘artificer’, one who makes things, always well-considered and beautiful. He has been called the 'Prince Charming of the 'Lime Revival in Britain'. He carried out the lime-based works to the Sea Captain's House in Kirkcaldy. The West Doorway of York Minster is probably his most famous work.
