Hugh MacDiarmid: A Celebration

  • The Saltire Society 9 Fountain Close 22 High Street Edinburgh, EH1 1TF (map)

Part of the Saltire Society Festival Programme 2019. For the full programme, please visit the Saltire Society event page here.

It has been said that Hugh MacDiarmid (1892 - 1978) was the single most powerful cultural force in 20th Century Scotland. A great poet, revolutionary thinker, a political extremist, a social liability and a solitary introvert. And while public familiarity with his work has waxed and waned, nevertheless his influence continues, incalculably deep and long- standing.

Join the Saltire Society for a celebratory performance with Alan Riach and Dolina MacLennan. Tickets are £8 for non-members/discounted for Saltire Society members, and are available from the event page here.
