As part of our Diamond Jubilee series of Public Lectures, Jo Brand held a public lecture with us on Tuesday 1 November, 6pm. Watch it back below!
The event proved hugely popular, maxing out the capacity of our Augustine Hall theatre and also gaining a large number of online viewers for the duration of the lecture. If you missed the event, or simply want to watch the hugely entertaining lecture back, you can do so below.
Jo says: “This lecture is about making more of a fuss, getting decent care, some proper respect and irritating people. This is not an academic lecture, because I am a comedian, so lower your expectations. And there might be some jokes.”
