Whisky JS

Once again we'll be having another edition of the legendary Whisky JS!

Rod Graham will lead a five dram tasting experience where you will learn all about the water of life.

Hike JS

For those who like the outdoors Hike JS will take a short journey up Arthurs Seat lead by the illustrious Lewis Cowper where you will be rewarded with an amazing view across the city.

Please be prepared for our lovely ever-changing Scottish weather.

There is a clear path to follow however participation is undertaken at your own risk.


We know how hard it is for parents to attend events like this while juggling childcare so, thanks to the kind folks at Cucumber, we will have onsite childcare during the conference!

The law in Scotland around childcare is very strict to ensure safety and our childcare provider has already performed a full risk assessment. Please note if you live in Scotland and your child would need to be out of school, by law our childcare service provider is legally required to be given a letter from your childs headteacher allowing them to be out of school.

If you would like to make use of the childcare facilities we do need to know in advance of the event for staffing purposes so please get in touch.
