Visits to places of heraldic, architectural and cultural interest
Sunday 14 August to Tuesday 16 August 2016
Heraldic Tour of the West and Central area

The Exhibition of Orders and Decorations will include a wide variety of medals. This would include medals of particular people who are of interest; for these all their medals, whether Orders, Decorations, or Medals, and background material on their lives will be available. For other exhibits, the particular award would be of interest, and so less emphasis would be given to the man and more to the award. There will also be some non-British awards displayed; these would, in the UK, be more unusual, and so offer an opportunity to compare the styles of other nations.
Open from 10:45 on the first day and from 09:00 on the second and third days; until 17:15 each day.

The Head Court of the Lord Lyon will be held at 1630 on Thursday 11th August 2016 in the Burgh Court, within the Glasgow City Chambers. The Lord Lyon King of Arms, who is a judge under Scottish law, will preside and various matters which fall beneath his purview will receive formal adjudication. It is expected to last approximately 30 minutes. There is a limit to the space available in the Burgh Court, and so the hearing will be ticketed, and tickets will be given out on a first come, first served basis. We regret that only one ticket per delegate can be allocated.

For those who arrive on Tuesday, there will be the chance to meet up with friends, old and new, in the Tellers' Bar of the Corinthian Club. We shall be gathering from approximately 1930 and all delegates and their spouses/partners are welcome. This is on a pay-your-way basis! The Club is just around the corner from the Trades Hall, at 191 Ingram Street, Glasgow G1 1DA.

Plenary Opening Session and address by the Very Revd Professor Iain Torrance, Dean of the Thistle and of the Chapel Royal, and Pro-Chancellor of Aberdeen University.

Congress Banquet Dress for the dinner is informal, but we would expect gentlemen to wear lounge suits, or at least jacket and trousers; ladies could wear either long or short. A number of delegates will probably be in highland dress, and dinner jackets would also be okay. Tails are never worn now in Britain for anything but the most formal occasions. Decorations may be worn, but must be miniatures; however you are not expected to wear them. You may wish to exhibit your coat of arms as a table-banner. Book your place here.
