I'm delighted to say that the University of Kent is hosting a new series of IN CONVERSATION with some absolutely terrific guests. Coming up we have Polly Toynbee, Michael Gove, Owen Jones, Terry Waite and Francesca Simon all in the schedule and other top names have confirmed they want to take part but we are juggling dates. Francesca Simon will be spending the afternoon on the University of Kent's lovely campus overlooking Canterbury. We expect a very big demand for tickets from her many loyal readers. Terry Waite will undoubtedly talk with me about his experiences in captivity in Beirut but will also reflect on the role of religion and the church today, at a time when religious persecution and bigotry towards people of different faiths remains part of our lives. Polly Toynbee, Michael Gove and Owen Jones will undoubtedly be discussing their own lives, formative influences and careers but also topics as diverse as how to pay for a university education, Brexit, Trump, and Britain's future role in the world. Do join us! Tickets have in the past gone very quickly so please book early to avoid disappointment, Dates and times are listed on this website under EVENTS, and available through the University of Kent Gulbenkian theatre, Collyer Ferguson theatre or (in the case of Polly Toynbee) from the Astor Theatre in Deal, Kent.
