About us

The Edinburgh Secret Society organizes events for those of a curious disposition. These include verbal, theatrical and experimental presentations intended to inform, entertain and bewilder.

The Society motto is ‘The king cannot be saved, the king cannot make custard’ (it’s a long story).

The Society is run by Peter Lamont and Richard Wiseman, with the invaluable assistance of Caroline Watt and Paula Wilson.  Our resident photographer is the wonderful Gordon Rutter.  The image on this page, and the one in the sidebar, are reproduced with permission from the exceptionally talented Dan Hillier.

Some of our events involve teaming up with other organisations, and our previous partners have included The Filmhouse, the British Science Association, Edinburgh’s World of Illusions, and The Edinburgh International Science Festival.

If you are a speaker/performer who would like to participate in one of our events, or would just like to help out in general, or have an idea for the Society, then please get in touch.
