In this section you can find out about upcoming events. You can also read reports from some of the events we have run in the past so you can find out a bit more about what to expect.
Almost all our events are free to members and we aim to run a wide enough variety of events that whatever your age, bleeding disorder, or location, there is something for everyone. We can usually help with the costs of travel as well.
Dates for your diary
Note: We will add more dates to the diary for 2020 in due course and will keep you informed.
Family trip to Jupiter Artland
11th February, 10:30am-2:30pm
Jupiter Artland, Edinburgh
This event is for families affected by a bleeding disorder
Haemophilia Scotland Members can attend this event for FREE!
The non-member rate is £10/person.
Haemophilia Scotland has been very kindly allocated some spaces for Jupiter Artland’s Learning Programme in the spring.
Join us as we explore the grounds at Jupiter Artland and inspire our imaginations with the artwork, weird and wonderful.
The arts are a therapeutic and creative outlet and this event will hopefully fire up everyone’s imaginations.
This event is on during the week and might not suit everyone. It ties in with the school holidays in Glasgow and Edinburgh. We will host other events throughout the year and will publish them in due course.
Due to capacity, it will be a first come-first served basis for registration. So please get in quick and don’t miss out!

CANCELLED DUE TO LOCKDOWN – Women’s Group Workshop
22nd March, 11:00am-12:30pm
Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow
This event is for families with women affected by a bleeding disorder
This event is FREE
We have the exciting opportunity to have the women’s quilt exhibited over the course of 2 months in 2021 as part of the Gallery of Modern Art’s (GoMA) commitment to exhibit artwork from community groups.
The quilt will be the centrepiece of the exhibition, but to fill the gallery space, the Gallery will be running workshops once a month over 12 months in the lead up the launch of our exhibition. The content produced at these workshops will be exhibited alongside the quilt. You don’t need to have a square on the quilt to participate!
The workshop sessions are designed for families with females affected by a bleeding disorder, so please do bring your kids along. The Gallery will put on fun activities whilst you’re working on your exhibition piece.
In terms of timing, we have Sunday 22nd March, 11:00am-12:30pm at GoMA booked in for our first meeting. It’d be great to have as many of you there so we can have a coffee and chat about how you would like the exhibit to look and what kind of art you’d like to have exhibited.
Also, no worries if you can’t make it to every workshop as they will be running every 4 weeks, so if you miss one, you can go to another.
Please register by the 1st of March.
