Upcoming Events

Please contact the Foundation office for information and tickets for all Crichton Foundation events.

The Foundation hosts two major fundraising events each year; the Women of Dumfries and Galloway Lunch in March and a St Andrew’s Ceilidh in November. We also hold the annual Elizabeth Crichton Founder’s Day Lunch and Henry Duncan Lecture, which celebrates the legacy of Elizabeth Crichton and her vision to establish a university campus in south west Scotland and the founding of a savings bank by Reverend Henry Duncan.

In addition we organise the Crichton Conversations, a series of lectures that attract high calibre speakers pre-eminent in their fields giving audiences an opportunity to debate a range of topical subjects of relevance to today’s Scotland.
