About this Event

"The Heritage Dilemma" - Making and Breaking World Cities

We are delighted that Loyd Grossman, internationally renowned heritage figure, will be delivering this year's World Heritage Day lecture.

Loyd will discuss the heritage dilemma faced by Edinburgh, where the cost of conserving the heritage rich environment is rising. Drawing on examples from Paris, London and Venice, Loyd will explore the challenges facing the city, where so many businesses have been able to flourish. Join us as we take a closer look at Edinburgh's own heritage dilemma.

About the speaker

Born in Boston in 1950, Loyd’s lifelong interest in heritage has involved him in a number of key organisations: he is a former Commissioner of English Heritage, and is currently President of The Arts Society, Vice President of the Churches Conservation Trust, and a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland, among many other roles.

Loyd was involved in a wide range of broadcasting including Through the Keyhole, and his love of food led him to create his own brand in 1995, which became one of Britain’s most successful new premium food brand.

In June 2015, Loyd was awarded a CBE for his services to heritage.
