Who Runs Edinburgh? (online)

Date: Monday 5th February   /   Time: 7:30pm - 9:00pm

Guest speaker Prof. David McCrone, Emeritus Professor of Sociology at the University of Edinburgh, will draw on his understanding of politics, history, and geography to explore who actually runs Scotland’s capital city. Where does the real power lie? Indeed, does anyone really run Edinburgh?

This event is organised by Edinburgh Humanists but open to all. It will be hosted online on Zoom and followed later in the same week by an in-person social meeting. You are very welcome to join this follow-up meeting, a Humanist Pub Night in in the back room of the Kenilworth Pub on Rose Street, Edinburgh, on 7 February at 7pm. This will provide a chance to discuss the themes of Prof. McCrone’s talk further.


This event is open to all Humanist Society Scotland members, supporters, and anyone who shares our vision and values. Participation is free.
