The venues page has been updated to show the location of the coach pickup for the Sunday trip to Craigmillar Castle & Falkland Palace.
Online registration for the weekend has now closed, but if you missed the booking window and would still like to attend, please let us know using the contact us form on this site and we will let you know if there are places available.
Note: All current members of the society are entitled to attend the formal AGM on Saturday 27th April 2019. If you would like to attend the AGM only please also let us know.
To allow a few extra days for people to register we have extended the booking deadline until the 3rd of March 2019. If you were thinking of coming, but have not yet booked please register as soon as possible using the register now page on this site.
Due to overwhelming demand, all the spaces on the Sunday trip have now been taken and the option to book this event is no longer available on the registration form. We have started a waiting list in case spaces become available due to cancellations later – please indicate in the comments section of the booking form if you would like to be added to this list.
There are still spaces available for the other events: the Welcome Dinner on Friday, Lecture Day and AGM and the Gala Meal on Saturday. These can all be booked via the online registration form.
Please note: the closing date for all registrations is 28th February 2019

If you are interested please follow the instructions on the travel page to access the discount, or click here for details.
The register now page on the site is now live and visitors are able to use it to officially register for the 2019 weekend! You can submit your registration and pay online via the DDS PayPal Store, or register online and pay by post if you prefer.
