Introducing The Richmond Lectures

Tuesday 02-02-2016 - 00:00

Coming to University is about broadening your mind and learning new things. The Richmond Lectures are part of Bristol SU's contribution to this! Between February and May we will be collaborating with our academic societies to host some truly leading thinkers and individuals.

The aim: to get students engaging in subjects beyond their own discipline.

This year’s programme includes:

16 February, 6pm: George 'Jonny' Johnson, the last surviving Dambuster. Book your FREE tickets here.

8 March, 6pm: Wendy Darke, Head of BBC Natural History

17 March, 8pm: Professor Alice Roberts, Clinical Anatomist and Broadcaster

13 April, 2pm: Shami Chakrabarti, Director of Liberty

19 April, 6pm: Mark Goldring, CEO of UK Oxfam

4 May, 6.30pm: Bob Marshall-Andrews QC, Former MP and leading lawyer

9 May, 6pm: Professor Marcus du Sautoy, Mathematical Institute and Author

All of these events will take place at the Richmond Building, home of the Students' Union, and are FREE!

All our guests were nominated by students and societies. If there is a dream speaker that you have always wanted to hear then get in touch with me by 11 February (max.austin@bristol.ac.uk) and we can add them to our list for next year!

See you there!
