The Saltire Society 80th Celebration

Join us as we celebrate 80 years of inspiration, celebration and provocation.

In 1936 a group of people came together in small flat in Glasgow.  They feared that Scotland’s cultural gas was at a peep, that the achievements of the past were unrecognised, great traditions were being lost and contemporary arts lacked vitality.
