An event with authors Sara Sheridan and Kate Murray-Brown

RSA Scotland is proud to support this exciting event, hosted by Frank Ross, The Rt. Hon. Lord Provost of Edinburgh and RSA Fellow.

Currently, there are only two statues of women in Edinburgh. In 2017 Frank Ross, along with Mercat Tours and the Edinburgh Evening News, began a campaign to raise funds and commission a statue to commemorate the life and work of Dr Elsie Inglis (1864-1917).

You can enjoy afternoon tea (with the option to have a glass of fizz) in Edinburgh City Chambers, located in the heart of Edinburgh’s historic Old Town, and listen to two incredible authors, Sara Sheridan and Kate Murray-Brown.

Sam Sheridan is a writer and activist. She will discuss her book ‘Where are the Women?’, her guide to an imagined Scotland, where women are appropriately commemorated in statues, on streets and buildings, and even in the hills and valleys.

Kate Murray-Brown is the editor and author of The Upstairs Room. She will unravel tales of the family life of Dr Elsie Inglis, her great great aunt.

Please see the ticket prices below:

  • £24.00 Afternoon tea included (booking fee applies)
  • £28.00 Afternoon tea with a glass of fizz included (booking fee applies)

All funds raised through this event will go towards the Elsie Inglis Statue Fundraising Campaign, headed by Frank Ross, The Rt. Hon. Lord Provost of Edinburgh and the OneCity Trust, including a dedicated group of volunteers and fundraisers. Further details can be found at https://www.elsieinglis.org/
