Tiffany Jenkins and Vicky Pryce

Sun 2nd Oct 2016, 2.15pm

William Morris Tent


Greek-born economist Vicky Pryce and Tiffany Jenkins, the author of Keeping Their Marbles, will debate the rights and wrongs of the Elgin / Parthenon Marbles remaining in the British museum. Were they lawfully bought from the Ottomans or spirited away from their Greek homeland? The debate will utilise the best of Greek logic and promises not a little Greek passion.

Chaired by Toby Mundy.
