After a successful and interesting 2017/18 session PSNS is taking a Summer break. Our sections have organized a number of outings and you can find detals on the relevant pages on this site. Anyone is welcome to join an excursion by contacting the relevant section secretary. Our Winter programme of lectures, talks and other activities resumes in October.

We have a great programme lined up and details will be posted soon on this website.

Our flagship “Curious Minds” lecture series will return for its third season and we have some great speakers lined up. Here’s a sneak preview.

To kick off the season we have invited Alison Sheridan, from the National Museum of Scotland” to talk about “Project Jade”. 5000 years ago a number of beautifully carved stone axe heads made their way from the French Alps to Scotland. Several of them were found in Perthshire. Find out about their remarkable journey on Friday xth October.


The 2018/19 programme, with ticket information, will be announced soon on the Curious Minds page.

Each PSNS Section has its own programme of talks and excursions listed on their individual pages on this site (see header for links).
