Have your say

A MAJOR networking event aimed at promoting sporting and cultural opportunities in the Capital is taking place tomorrow.

Representatives from the British Council, EventScotland, Edinburgh International Festival and Big Lottery Fund will gather with around 100 delegates from a wide variety of organisations for the third annual Access to Sport and Culture Edinburgh conference, which is being held at the Hub in Castlehill.

Councillor Richard Lewis, culture and leisure convener, who will welcome delegates, said: “The council and our partners are committed to making access to sport and culture as easy as possible for people across the city.

“There was a huge buzz in the room last year and I’m really looking forward to seeing the many inspiring outcomes it’s certain to generate.”
