Events: Carson’s legacy

Here’s an event of note from this year’s Belfast Festival at Queen’s.

This year marks the 75th anniversary of the death of Edward Carson and his burial in St. Anne’s Cathedral. His statue still stands in front of the Stormont Parliament and his name still resonates through Unionist and Loyalist folklore. Both main Unionist parties lay claim to his mantle. This session will examine the legacy of Carson for today’s Northern Ireland as well as aspects of his remarkable career.

Venue :Elmwood Hall
Times : 25 Oct 2010 6:30PM – 25 Oct 2010 8:03PM

    many thanks for pointing this out. Can anyone confirm what the seating is like in Elmwood Hall – should I be looking upstairs or downstairs for the best vantage point?
