Our Christmas party will be held in the elegant surroundings of the Portrait Gallery. A reception in the Great Hall will be followed by a light supper with wine in Café Portrait. We are delighted that after supper Edinburgh Police Choir will make a very welcome return to give us a short concert. The evening will conclude with our raffle draw. The Friends Committee look forward to welcoming you and your guests to this splendid start to the festive season.
