Our Season runs from Sept through to August each year. The culmination is normally the Edinburgh International Exhibition. First run in 1861, this is one of the longest running exhibitions in the world.
With our on-line programme, we have several members joining us regularly from overseas and from farther corners of the UK. We look forward to welcoming you.
