The Order and Chapel of the Thistle

Zoom / Online only.

Elizabeth Roads LVO FSA is Secretary of the Order of the Thistle and has been closely involved in the Order since 1975 becoming Assistant Secretary in 2008 and Secretary in 2014. The Chapel, which is part of St Giles Cathedral, was built in 1911 to provide the first spiritual home of the Order and to celebrate the centenary she edited a book of articles relating to the building of the Chapel.

The Chapel and its Ante Chapel commemorates each member of the Order since the revival of the Order in 1687 with all members since 1911 having a stall-plate on one of the Chapel stalls. Each stall is surmounted by the crest of one of the current members and each member has a banner which appears in the Preston Aisle with the main body of St Giles. Join Elizabeth Roads for a fascintating talk on The Order and Chapel of the Thistle.
