We have a programme of events in the medical rooms starting with refreshments at 7pm on Friday nights. In addition, we have social events including an oration and annual dinner afterwards and a Burns Supper. We occasionally open rooms to the public for example during residents’ weekend.

Current Events

A list of upcoming events. Please let us know you are coming so we can keep numbers safe and make sure you have the zoom link if you are not able to attend in person.

Dinner & Oration

The social highlight of the year. We invite an eminent speaker to talk in the afternoon and join us for a glittering dinner in the evening.


We invite young doctors from around the region to compete for the chance to present their research or audit to us with a cash prize for the winner.

Burns Supper

A celebration of the life and poetry of the poet Robert Burns

We celebrate Burns Night in the Merchant Taylors’ Hall with a combination of tradition and innovation. In January 2020 (one month BC – Before Covid) world-class piper Cameron Edgar heralded the haggis, and world-class speaker David Purdie proposed the Immortal Memory with the aid of PowerPoint.  The poet William McGonagall gatecrashed the event to propose a vote of thanks and legendary ceilidh band Alterego taught us Highland dancing.
