The Tumbling Lassie is a heart-warming story of the rescue of a young girl from slavery in Edinburgh in 1687. Despite the Judge in this particular case being recorded as saying, ‘we have no slaves in Scotland’, slavery is still very much present in Edinburgh and across Scotland in 2019. In fact slavery is now considered to be the biggest human rights issue of our time with its exponential growth holding millions of people, including British citizens, in violent, exploitive and unimaginable conditions.
Inspired by this case, the Faculty of Advocates have committed to raising awareness and funds to eradicated slavery. Held in the exclusive Prestonfield House, Edinburgh, The Tumbling Lassie Annual Ball has become the largest anti-slavery fundraising event in Scotland. Tickets are limited and on sale now for the 5 October, black tie event which includes drinks reception, dinner and entertainment. This is a wonderful opportunity to express support for anti-trafficking efforts here in Scotland and beyond.
