TV historian Dan Snow will be in Corby on Friday on the first day of a national tour by the Let’s Stay Together roadshow.
The broadcaster will be outside Corby Cube from 2pm urging people to make sure their voices are heard before the referendum on Scottish independence on September 18.
The Let’s Stay Together campaign is being backed by top actors and athletes and famous names from the arts, science and literature who have been brought together by Dan to say to Scotland: “We want to let you know how very much we value our bonds of citizenship with you, and to express our hope that you will vote to renew them.
“What unites us is much greater than what divides us. Let’s stay together.”
He said: “Corby is somewhere with fantastic historical and contemporary links to Scotland, so it was always going to be a priority stop for our tour.
“I feel passionately about Britain and our shared history across these islands.
“Like people living in Corby I don’t have a vote in the Scottish referendum but I certainly have a view and that is that Britain should stay together.
“And I know that’s what people think here too, as the recent referendum showed.
“I’ve brought together a bunch of people who represent the best of British to make that view clear. I want to ensure the voice of everyone is heard.
“That’s why I’m going from town to town ensuring people sign up to the Let’s Stay Together message.”
The visit to Corby is being hosted by Corby Council leader Tom Beattie and supported by Corby and East Northants MP Andy Sawford.
