CPD: The Journey to Financial Independence

23/01/2020
12:45 pm
Library of the Society of Advocates in Aberdeen

Jenny Madhoo and Jane Cowie of Acumen Financial Planning on The Journey to Financial Independence:
Financial Independence is the time in life when an individual has sufficient savings and investments, so that he or she does not have to work again. Our speakers will demonstrate the tools used to help clients achieve financial independence. What will your life after work look like? We can simulate “what if” scenarios, such as spending more, extra travel, buying a holiday home, gifting to children, surviving a stock market crash and so on

Faffless Whisky Tasting

24/01/2020
7:00 pm
Library of the Society of Advocates in Aberdeen

Craig Thom recently set up Faffless and ran a successful whisky festival in the Tunnels as well as tastings in Food Story and Slains. We have managed to persuade him to come to the library to share some amazing whiskies with our members and their guests.

His tastings lean more on the entertainment side of things rather than boring people to death with facts about whisky. As an independent whisky chap, Craig can ensure people learn a lot about the whisky and the industry as well without any bias to a particular distillery. You can also ask as many questions as you want about the whisky world, from whisky recommendations all the way to investment advice on whisky.

An Evening with the Travelling Cooper

17/03/2020
7:00 pm
Library of the Society of Advocates in Aberdeen

The craft of coopering goes back thousands of years and is soaked in tradition where knowledge and a high level of skills are required.

Duncan, a Journeyman Cooper, is passionate about his trade and through his demonstration will unlock the mysteries of how a cask is formed from oak tree to the dram. Explaining the magic of how compounds are released from the wood to produce flavours and colours will provide an insight to the special qualities the cask performs.

The art of raising and repairing a cask will be a main feature of the demo where using traditional tools will demonstrate that methods handed down over centuries are still as relevant today as they were from those early years.

Freezin’ Student Show

22/04/2020
7:30 pm
His Majesty's Theatre

Fresh from the staggering fundraising success of The Glaikit Showman, Student Show is delighted to return to the stage of HMT.

Scunnered by the shambles of Brexit, the Cooncil decides to go it alone, and sets Aberdeen up as its very own state. The decision is taken to appoint the city’s own Royal Family to preside over its glorious future. Plucked fae the gutting benches of a Torry fish house, our two Princesses, Annie and Elsie, find out that one of them has deeply hidden powers. The result? To turn the Granite City into an icy wilderness (or, at least, an even colder one than usual!). Will Ferryhill survive the frost? Will Sandilands cope wi’ a’ the snow?

Come along to this year’s Student Show – it’s bound tae melt your heart!
