Our speakers are national and international experts who enjoy sharing their knowledge with an inquisitive audience eager to hear what lies behind the headlines. A friendly atmosphere pervades all our meetings, and a complimentary drink after each lecture assists further discussion.

The Society was founded in 1802 “to aid the study, diffusion, and advancement of the arts and sciences with their applications”. Over two centuries later, we added “the better understanding of public affairs”. Our regular meetings consider many topics and contribute to public life in the West of Scotland and beyond.

Our meetings attract an audience of between 300 and 400 people who come not only to listen to presentations from distinguished speakers but also to engage them in lively discussion. The speakers seem to enjoy the evening as much as the audience and many comment on the high standard of debate.

The lectures are open to members and non-members alike and attract expert and inexpert individuals of all ages from every background. Why not come and try it out?
