Public Lecture - Baroness Onora O’Neill 

Freedom of Expression
Freedom of Expression: a fundamental value and a qualified right. Baroness Onora O’Neill will be speaking together with Mark Hammond on the right to freedom of expression. Their lecture will survey the history and philosophy of freedom of expression. It will introduce a new publication by the EHRC on the legal framework that protects – and restricts – this freedom, with particular reference to hate speech and offence relating to characteristics protected under the Equality Act 2010.

Writing Comes AliveWriting Comes Alive 2014-15
Louis de Bernieres
St Gregory's Centre, 6pm, 14th February 2015

The next author in our Writing Comes Alive series is the wonderful writer Louis de Bernieres. AS Byatt described his writing as being "in the direct line that runs through Dickens and Waugh...he has only to look into his world, one senses, for it to rush into reality, colour and touch and taste"
He is the best-selling author of 'Captain Corelli's Mandolin', which won the Commonwealth Writers' Prize, Best Book in 1995. His most recent books are the novels 'Birds Without Wings' and 'Partisan's Daughter'; a collection of short stories 'Notwithstanding'; and a collection of poetry, 'Imagining Alexandria'.
Louis will give a reading followed by an opportunity for questions and book-signing.
Please note our change of venue from Sidney Cooper Gallery to St Gregory's Centre, North Holmes Road.
