Join us for an evening in the company of one of Aberdeen’s most erudite and controversial commentators. James Furneaux’s retrospective of Aberdeen’s urban landscape provides the perfect backdrop to fascinating journey across the history of Union Street. Retired architect Alan Minto depicts the deterioration of Aberdeen’s high street over recent years. Be prepared to be enlightened, stimulated and provoked!

After a number of years employed by the Hospital Board Architects Department, he entered private practice as a partner in Leo Durnin Minto & Partners. He retired as Senior Partner in 1984 and later started an Architectural Consultancy Practice. He finally retired 2008.
