On Thursday evening of the Special Conference, delegates will be welcomed to Glasgow by the city's Lord Provost during a drinks reception at one of our most important and prestigious buildings - Glasgow city Chambers. Situated overlooking George Square in the heart of the the city, this grand and imposing building is an impressive symbol of Glasgow's political strength and historical wealth. For over a hundred years since its completion in 1888, it has been home to the successive councils serving the city. After the reception, delegates may wish to make a short walk into the adjacent merchants' city area to sample some of Glasgow's vibrant night-life, or enjoy dinner and a drink in one of its many restaurants and bars.

Friday evening will see delegates enjoying a superb conference dinner - sampling quality Scottish produce and hospitality in the world-famous Kelvingrove Art Gallery. The building houses an internationally significant collection of over 8000 objects in 22 state-of the art galleries with a range of displays including art, natural history, armour and much much more. Behind and around the gallery lies Kelvingrove Park - a 34 hectare garden straddling the River Kelvin and containing many monuments including one of Lord Kelvin - the physicist William Thomson who held, for over 50 years, the chair of Natural Philosophy at the University of Glasgow. The main building of the university towers over the park and the art gallery providing a dramatic backdrop to both. After the dinner, delegates may care to take a traditional nightcap - a dram or two of whisky - in one the many pubs in nearby Byres Road in the fashionable west-end.
