Events & News

Strathblane Heritage organises six events every winter, on the third Monday of September, October, November, January, February and March, all at 7.30pm in our lovely Village Club at 20-22 Glasgow Road Blanefield – https://villageclub1911.org/  

All are welcome: membership costs just £10 a year entitling you to free access to all events. To join Strathblane Heritage, just come along to one of our events clutching a £10 note! Guests are equally welcome upon payment of a £3 admission fee. Please note that the club’s seated capacity is 90 people and it’s advisable to arrive in good time to be sure of a seat. 

The normal format is for a speaker or speakers to make a presentation of an hour, followed by Q&A and then tea and biccies. Our topics vary considerably, as you can see from this list of future and past event presentations – but they must all have in common that they shed a light on meaningful events in our parish, and are entertainingly presented.
