Our chairman Barry Gilbertson, has kindly agreed to wear his other hat as Chairman of 'City of Bath UNESCO World Heritage Site' and tell us about World Heritage and its importance to Bath. In this talk, Barry will discuss the origin of World Heritage, how Bath’s Inscription on the world list in 1987 makes it one of only two cities in Europe with a citywide World Heritage Site (WHS) designation. He will explain the six aspects of Outstanding Universal Value attributed to the City of Bath in the UNESCO Inscription, and why the Inscription is so valuable to Bath’s future and to our local economy.

Afterwards you can join fellow members and friends for a glass of prosecco.

Cost: £10 per person for members and guests.
