700 years ago, a ship set sail to France from Arbroath carrying a letter that would go on to become one of the most important and much-debated documents in history. In 2020, Arbroath is once again in the spotlight as Scotland celebrates the anniversary of the Declaration of Arbroath. Join us for a free talk and Q&A on the Declaration, as pundits and experts including broadcaster Billy Kay, historian Prof Hector McQueen and author Sara Sheridan reflect on the document’s meaning, impact and legacy.
