There are still a few places available for these events. Members interested should contact Jerry Ozaniec <visits@oldedinburghclub.org.uk>.

Winter Lecture Series

The Club's series of lecture meetings starting in the autumn is now available.

Prof Richard Rodger <Richard.Rodger@ed.ac.uk> would like to hear from any member who would be interesting in presenting a short talk as part of the December 7th Members Evening.

The Club is Edinburgh's local history society, concerned with all aspects of the city's history and development.

For one hundred years we have encouraged interest in Edinburgh's history through lectures and visits. We also publish The Book of the Old Edinburgh Club, which is renowned as a source of well-authenticated information on all aspects of Edinburgh history.

We hope our website will help you to explore the fascinating past of Scotland's capital. Go to the Membership page to learn how to join us in exploring Edinburgh through history. If you have a question about Edinburgh's history, go to our Resources page for useful websites and books.
