During the conference you will be able to enjoy Glasgow?s rich culture and heritage. The venues for the three official social events have been selected to allow you to experience both tradition and modernity.
On the evening of Wednesday 6th January, a civic reception for conference delegates, hosted by Glasgow City Council at the City Chambers, will enable you to appreciate the growth and development of the city that was once known as the second city of the Empire. You will enter by the spectacular marble staircase and enjoy drinks, canap?s and some musical entertainment in the Banqueting Hall.
At a reception to be held at University of Glasgow (founded in 1451) on the evening of Thursday 7th January, you will be able to enjoy the treasures of the Hunterian Museum, while enjoying drinks and nibbles. Songs and recitations by renowned specialists in the work of Robert Burns will be part of the entertainment.
The 2016 conference dinner will take place on Friday 8th January in the Glasgow Science Centre, situated just across the river from the hotel where the conference is taking place, where there will be an opportunity for some c?ilidh dancing to finish off your Scottish experience!
Throughout the conference, and at the social events, you will have the opportunity to hear from some of highly talented musicians and young people from Glasgow?s schools.
