Why bother with Yorkshire – is the question at the heart of the first in a series of conversations taking place at Ripon on Saturday.

As we approach Yorkshire Day – to be hosted in Ripon this year – we look at Yorkshire’s place in the life and economy of the region and the country with the Chief Executive of Welcome to Yorkshire Sir , the Bishop of , the Rt Rev Nick Baines and members of the public.

The Wilfrid Conversations will grapple with the issues of our day – and include a Christian perspective.

The on July 21 will explore topics such as the North-South divide and the regional identity of an area that boasts some of the most stunning countryside in the UK and many culturally diverse cities.

The Dean of Ripon, the Very Rev John Dobson said: “Ripon Cathedral engages with the local and regional community in many ways and we are keen to explore some of the urgent issues facing this region from a Christian point of view.

“I am pleased that the first of our new Wilfrid Conversations is on a subject close to my heart and I am keen to encourage others to join in the conversation. I am very grateful to Bishop Nick and Sir Gary for coming together to give this a thrilling launch.”

All are welcome at the event which runs from 10.30am til 12.30pm at Ripon Cathedral on Saturday (July 21.) Entry is free and tea and coffee available. Contact for more information.
