The Strathmartine Centre hosts a series of morning seminars, held monthly on Wednesday mornings between September and June, at which invited speakers give informal presentations on a wide range of historical topics, and at which tea and coffee are served. The June meeting often takes the form of a visit to a historical site.
Members of the Strathmartine Centre are invited to the seminars; others are welcome to attend, but are encouraged to contact the office in advance, since space is limited.
