2017 SATURDAY PROGRAMME
We have a special treat in store for day two of Wide Days.
Delegates will quite literally be invited to take to the stage – for lunch. Following a guided coach tour, complete with a fresh air interlude, guests will visit Edinburgh’s iconic Usher Hall.
An ‘in-conversation’ and networking lunch will take place on the venue’s stage. And as befits a building bequeathed by a pioneering distiller, we will host a whisky tasting in the dressing room.
