The Friends of Mansfield Traquair Centre

In 1992 a group of local citizens, concerned about the condition, both inside and out, of the building and the murals, formed the Friends of Mansfield Place Church (now known as The Friends of the Mansfield Traquair Centre).

The Friends are a voluntary organisation and registered charity with members mostly drawn from Edinburgh, Fife, and the Lothians but we also have supporters from all over the UK and from overseas.

The trained guides are on duty on Open Days, offer tours to visitors, answer questions and manage the sales desk. The Friends also provide guides for prearranged private tours and can provide a speaker for local organisations which have a winter lecture programme.

The Friends produce an annual newsletter and arrange an outing each summer to a place of relevant interest for our members. The Friends are always looking for new volunteers who would enjoy showing off the wonderful murals.
