The Bare Facts - Land Reform:: CCA :: 21st October 7pm

The Bare Facts October event will see land reform author and campaigner, Andy Wightman and photographer and filmmaker Chris Leslie discuss the implications of land reform in Scotland. An evening of music and political debate; hosted by the fabulous Viv Gee.

Scotland has the most concentrated land ownership in the developed world. Half of Scotlandís private land is owned by just 432 owners. Yet, land reform is not simply a rural issue. Over 26,000 acres of urban Scotland lies derelict. And over 750,000 acres is registered in overseas tax havens. Houses are increasingly unaffordable for young people. Land reform concerns us all.

With music from Scots Singer of the Year, Siobhan Miller and the eclectic fun loving, League of Highland Gentlemen, this is a night not to be missed!
