Cambridge Heritage Debate: 17 October 2012

The Alliance is delighted to announce its latest initiative – a series of public heritage debates to examine some of the more controversial issues we face in caring for the huge range of historic assets we have in this country.

The series, generously sponsored by Ecclesiastical Insurance Group, kicks off in Cambridge on 17 October in partnership with the Cambridge Heritage Research Group. The subject will be ‘Heritage & Tourism: Who needs Whom?’. Alliance Chairman Loyd Grossman will lead a panel of outstanding speakers – Robert Hewison, author of ‘The Heritage Industry’; James Berresford, Chief Executive of VisitEngland; Dame Fiona Reynolds, Director General of the National Trust; and Marie Louise Stig Sorenson, Reader in Prehistoric Archaeology, University of Cambridge. The debate will then be opened to the floor.

6.15pm for a 6.30 start at Magdalene College, Cambridge, followed by a reception, finishing at 8.30pm. This event is free of charge but registration is required. To find out more and to register for this exciting event, click here.
