Centenary Programme Published

The full programme of events  and prices are now available on this website.

The Centenary Conference and Gathering programme is an extensive menu from which you will have to choose – it is not possible to do everything! Take a look and think about which events you would like to attend.

Online booking will open soon – watch out for a notification via the Centenary email group.

The number of available spaces on some tours are limited on some of the tours, so if there are “must do” events then please try to book quickly.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Edinburgh in April 2023.

Coming Soon – The Centenary Gathering!

The Centenary Team has been working hard to prepare a veritable feast of delights for the gathering in 2023.

Over the next few weeks this website will start to change and we hope it will become your reference point for all the information that you need to plan your trip to Edinburgh in April 2023.


The DDS has updated its COVID-19 policy for the 2022 Event.  The official version can be found on the site and the latest version is shown below:

COVID-19 for the Dunnett Weekend 2022 (updated 28-Feb-2022)

Attendees at the Dunnett Weekend 2022 events must be fully vaccinated and boosted, and must bring such proof of vaccination as is accepted by their government.

We would also appreciate it if you could test yourselves just prior to attendance at events.  At the events themselves, we (and the venues we use) may require additional measures such as mask wearing and hand sanitisation and a degree of social distancing, and these may vary from venue to venue.  We will comply with regulations and advice from the Scottish Government.

If you have any concerns about any of this, please contact



We have closed the booking for 2022, including the waiting list.

The weekend team will be finalising the arrangements for the event over the next month and will be in touch with all those who have booked with further details.

Weekend Programme

The draft programme for the 2022 Dunnett Weekend is now available.   All the events will be in the city this year.

The weekend will start with a welcome meal on Friday, followed by a full day of events on Saturday.  We will be meeting at the Royal Scots Club and there will be three guest speakers covering a range of topics related to Dunnett’s works and news on other society  activities.   The Saturday programme culminates with a Gala Dinner at the Club.

We are planning an event on Sunday in Edinburgh which we hope to announce soon.  There will be no charge for this event and it will take place within Edinburgh.

Booking for the event will open on 4th Jan 2020.
