The Referendum- A Conversation

As Autumn 2014 comes ever closer why not join the two-part conversation series with Jon Snow, Alex Salmond and Alistair Darling (Part of The Herald – Fraser of Allander Lecture Series)?

In one of the first major public events about Independence, First Minister Alex Salmond will appear in conversation with broadcaster Jon Snow on November 23rd. ‘Better Together’ leader Alistair Darling will be questioned at a second event on December 6th by Herald and Sunday Herald writer Alan Taylor.

The conversations – part of the Herald-Fraser of Allander Lecture Series – are being run in partnership with the Glasgow-based charity the International Network of Street Papers (INSP). Snow, one of the most respected broadcasters in the UK, is an ambassador of INSP. All proceeds from the ticket sales will go towards the charity’s work alleviating poverty and supporting street papers sold by homeless vendors in Scotland and around the world.

The conversations which focus on independence, and its implications for Scotland and the United Kingdom, will also cover social justice and media independence. There will also be an opportunity for members of the audience to question the speakers.

The Herald-Fraser of Allander Lecture series has established a reputation for dealing head on with major issues of national and international importance, and this series will make a major contribution to the independence debate as plans for the referendum get underway.

This event would be suitable for pupils in S4 and above. More information and how to obtain tickets can be found on the University of Strathclyde Website.
