The Best Student Life. Bristol SU

The Richmond Lectures are the University's flagship public lecture series. They aim to promote cross-disciplinary discussion by hosting leading thinkers and speakers. The Richmond Lectures are made unique by the fact that speakers are nominated and invited solely by students.  

The series takes place each year at the Richmond Building, home of the Students' Union, and are free to attend for students, staff, and the public.
