Heritage Hustings - April 18th

On World Heritage Day 2017, Edinburgh World Heritage hosts the city's first ever Heritage Hustings

Apr 4, 2017

April 18th, 6PM - 8PM, St. Stephen's Church Stockbridge

For World Heritage Day 2017, Edinburgh World Heritage will be hosting the city's first ever 'Heritage Hustings' against the backdrop of Playfair's majestic St. Stephen's Church. This is your chance to question the candidates on the heritage issues you feel strongly about such as the contribution of new development to the city, the care and maintenance of historic buildings, issues of planning control, and the balance between the needs of visitors and residents.

Joining us for the evening will be Councillors Alex Lunn (SNP), Ian Perry (Labour), Joanna Mowat (Conservative) and Nigel Bagshaw (Green). We are also delighted that Sandy Stoddart, the Queen's Sculptor in Ordinary in Scotland, will join the panel to provide his unique perspective on the importance of Edinburgh's heritage for the future of the city.

After the hustings you'll be invited to meet the candidates as well as your Edinburgh World Heritage team.
