The Wagner Society of Scotland was founded in 1984 under the chairmanship of Derek Watson. After Derek’s retiral in 2013, a new Committee was elected with Dale Bilsland as Chair.

Our aim is to promote the knowledge and appreciation of the life & works of Richard Wagner.

We hold meetings monthly from September to June/July and a residential study course in the summer.  Meetings are generally held on Sundays at 7.30pm at the Edinburgh Society of Musicians, 3 Belford Road, Edinburgh EH4 3BL. See events page for current programme.
