Members of the University family are invited to our annual celebration of this unique relationship.
The annual Incorporated Trades of Aberdeen Service, which takes place on Sunday 8th March in King’s College Chapel at 11am, is a unique opportunity in our calendar to celebrate the relationship we have with this important organisation and we would like to invite you to join us.
The relationship between the Seven Incorporated Trades of Aberdeen and the University dates back to the 1500s. This relationship was largely established through Rev Dr William Guild who graduated from Marischal College at the age of 22 and went on to become the Parish Minister at the City Kirk of Aberdeen in 1631. Subsequently he became Principal to the University of Aberdeen in 1640.
Our links are just as important today and members of the Seven Incorporated Trades include leaders from the City and influential supporters of the University. Representatives of the Seven Incorporated Trades attend our graduation ceremonies and support the work of the University in many varied ways.
The service on Sunday 8 March will celebrate this relationship and we will also welcome Rev Howard Drysdale, Aberdeen Harbour Chaplain to preach.
If you would like to attend the service and/or if you would like to join the academic procession, please RSVP to email@example.com or telephone 01224 273233. A lunch reception will follow afterwards in the Linklater Rooms.
