Event description

Description

The Medical Society has held a formal dinner in the Great Hall of St Andrews Hospital for many years. Robin and Barbara Kelso have arranged this event since 2015 and as a result, it runs like clockwork. The caterers at St Andrews produce an excellent meal to match the beautiful surroundings and Robin selects fine wines to complement the food. The normal dress code is black tie but several people ignore this and they are not made to feel uncomfortable.

Three years ago, instead of an after-dinner speech by a celebrity, a soprano was engaged to entertain us during and after the meal. We have maintained this tradition and this year a celebrated harpist, Bethan Semmels, is coming to the dinner. She will provide musical accompaniment while we assemble in the anteroom and drink prosecco. Before the meal, Bethan will introduce herself and at the end of the dinner will play a few pieces to show off her skill. We have not yet decided the programme but I am sure it will be a glittering musical display.

Bethan is part of the Live Music Now project and in the afternoon will be playing to patients in St Andrews Hospital.

In past years, generous members have invited guests to make up a table of eight. The cost of a ticket remains at £35.
