The fourth Comrie Conversation event will take place on 19th November at 19.30 in the White CHurch, Comrie. YES or NO – the independence referendum creates the opportunity to discuss what kind of future we want for Scotland. The final event of the year has a real heavyweight lineup.
Iain Macwhirter is a journalist and one of Scotland’s most distinguished political commentators. His recent book (and TV series), ‘The Road to Referendum’ charts the history and development of the independence question in Scotland. Iain quite rightly is in great demand as a speaker. He loves the idea of Comrie Conversation and has said he is keen to take part as it ‘…..sounds like fun!".
Playwright and theatre director David Grieg is already internationally acclaimed in his field, with a growing reputation as a commentator on the independence question and the future of the nation. David is a good friend of Karine Polwart who spoke at the last Comrie Conversation. Karine sang the praises of our discussions and it’s great that we are now being recommended by our speakers!
