She is someone who needs very little introduction, but let us say that we are thrilled to tell you that Elaine C Smith will join us at the 2016 lunch.
She is one of Scotland’s dearest and most favourite actresses and comediennes, mainly as a result of her role as Mary Doll in Rab C Nesbitt, but also in many other roles from musicals and pantomimes to drama.
More recently she was awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Glasgow and took a prominent role in the 2014 Scottish Independence Referendum. Dr Smith is the current chairperson of the Scottish Independence Convention.
We very much look forward to hearing her speak at the 2016 lunch.
