We are delighted that we are able, once again, to hold the Friends Christmas Party in the Scottish National Portrait Gallery. A reception with a glass of fizz will be held in the elegant surroundings of the Great Hall followed by a one course supper with wine, then tea or coffee with a sweet bite in Café Portrait. There will be a raffle and a table magician, and the evening will conclude with a short concert from Aw Blacks, one of the choirs from the community group Sing in the City. The Friends Committee look forward to welcoming you and your guests to this splendid start to the festive season.

It is essential to advise us in advance of any dietary intolerances. Please email us at [email protected].
