People and Place: Take Three

About People and Place: Take Three

Leith, Strathspey and the Eastern Borders/Berwickshire – how does the culture of these places link with the past, present and future people who live there?

Enjoy a rich exploration led by Tim Bell, author of Choose Life, Choose Leith: Trainspotting on Location; Chris Halliday, author of Strathspey Myths and Legends; and Mike Fraser, author of a new study on John Mackay Wilson’s Tales of the Scottish Borders.

The wrap-up comes from The People’s Parish, an approach to local arts and heritage championed by TRACS.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for People and Place: Take Three are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
