The teas will be provided by Cobbs Café at 3pm. Booking is essential and tickets are available from Elgin library at £4.

On Thursday, November 26 at 7pm, Lady Claire Macdonald will be advising on how to transform great Scottish produce into great Scottish food. This event is free of charge but booking is essential and entry will be by ticket only.
