UPDATE Douglas Thomson (K53-61) writes : As a consequence of the cancellation of this year’s Edinburgh Festival, the Fringe and the Tattoo the sad decision has been made to postpone the Northern Gathering scheduled for 15 August 2020.
Whilst it still might be possible to have a lunch in July this year many attending were also coming to enjoy the Festival, the Fringe and the Tattoo. The College were again putting on a play in the Fringe which we had hoped to enjoy.
The good news is that the Gathering has been rescheduled for the 14th August 2021.
ORIGINAL ARTICLE : The next OF Northern Gathering will be in Edinburgh on Saturday the 15th August 2020. The gathering will be a lunch in The Douglas room at the Royal Scots Club and you can see my invite here. Partners of OFs are strongly encourage to join us. Please contact Douglas Thomson (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you intend attending.
Following the lunch there is the opportunity to enjoy the Edinburgh Festival and the Edinburgh Military Tattoo. Tickets for the Tattoo will be put on sale at 10.00am on 2nd December 2019 and you can apply here http://www.edintattoo.co.uk/tickets/. Application for tickets is now only by the internet or phone. Tattoo tickets do sell out very quickly.
