The Stirling Smith Art Gallery and Museum

Join author James Jauncey at The Stirling Smith Art Gallery & Museum on 16th November as he tells the story of Robert Cunninghame Graham, the first Socialist in British Parliament, and the subject of Jauncey's spellbinding new biography.

Robert Bontine Cunninghame Graham of Gartmore (1852-1936) is best known as the co-founder with Keir Hardie of the Scottish Labour Party, forerunner of the modern Labour Party, and later as founding president of the Scottish National Party. But in a long and extraordinary life he was many other things besides: politician, writer, horseman, traveller, adventurer, socialist, fighter for social justice, visionary, humanitarian. As his friend Joseph Conrad said: ‘when I think of you I feel as if I have lived all my life in a dark hole without seeing or knowing anything.’

In this illustrated talk, Jamie Jauncey, Don Roberto’s great-great-nephew and author of a major new biography, asks why this iconic figure is not better remembered today and reflects on what it was like to grow up with a near-mythical figure in recent family history.

Doors: 6:30pm

Talk begins: 7:00pm
