Wagner Society of Scotland

The aim of the Society is to promote knowledge and appreciation of the works of Richard Wagner.  The Society is open to all and hosts a number of events. The society's website (www.wagnerscotland.net)  is worth studying, and gives details of their programmes and subscription.

They have a number of activities, one of which is raising money for a Bayreuth Scholarship,  to contribute towards the visit of a promising artist to the Bayreuth Festival.

They can be contacted through the contact details given on the Society website, (see above).  New members are always welcome!
