An Evening with Nutmeg, the Scottish Football Periodical

  • Signet Library Parliament Square Edinburgh EH1 1RF (map)

Nutmeg is not a book, it’s not a magazine. It’s somewhere inbetween, and something completely new in Scotland: a quarterly subscription-only long-form publication filled with top-quality writers, great articles and fascinating stories. And it’s all about Scottish football. The WS Society is delighted to host the Nutmeg team at the Signet Library for their first event in Edinburgh.

  • General discussion to end the evening with Michael Calvin, Stuart Cosgrove and Michael Stewart among the panelists.
