THURSDAY 8th JUNE 6pm – THE MEAKIN ROOM BOOK TICKETS ONLINE
Emma Bridgewater says: “Loyd Grossman became Chairman of the Royal Parks last year, so he is uniquely well placed to join in and to advance our conversation about improving our parks and green spaces in Stoke on Trent.
“The Royal Parks cover 5,000 acres and as well as gardens and parkland the organisation care for several cemeteries, and they are responsible for the maintenance of countless buildings statues and monuments- personally I have a million questions for him, and I’m sure you do too – so quick sticks! Book a ticket to see him at the Stoke-on-Trent Literary Festival on Thursday June 8th!!”
The definition of a true polymath, Loyd Grosman began his career in journalism before being diverted into television where he has written, presented and devised of some of our best known programmes.
Through a lifelong interest in history he has become a national champion for heritage and the arts and has been involved with organisations ranging from the Museums and Galleries Commission to NADFAS (where he is President) from The Heritage Alliance to the Churches Conservation Trust and the Worshipful Company of Arts to the Royal Parks (where he is Chairman).
We welcome Loyd to Stoke-on-Trent where he will ask us to consider “What’s the use of heritage in the post-truth world?” for what promises to be a thought-provoking event.
