In addition, there will a Day Conference involving the four Scottish Hellenic Societies in Edinburgh on Saturday 25 April. 

There will also be a programme of Greek films, and a range of Modern Greek Classes, both organised in association with the Greek and Cypriot Society of the University of Aberdeen.  I'll send out more information in the near future.

Membership fees for the coming session will be due in October, and I will send out a fee notice at the beginning of that month.
