Spark 100

30th Mar 2018

We are delighted to be part of a year-long celebration of the works and influence of world-renowned author Muriel Spark marking the centenary of her birthday.

Walking in the footsteps of Spark’s Edinburgh, a Mercat Tours guide will tell the story of the some time retiring Edinburgh local, whose style and work influenced a huge array of authors. She was educated at James Gillespie's School for Girls in the city, an experience that many believe went on to influence one of her most famous novels, The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie.

Time: Saturday 31 March & Sunday 01 April, 5pm
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes
