Distinguished Lecture Series

A decade of Distinguished Lectures

Delivered by an exceptional range of expert guest speakers, the Distinguished Lecture Series, covers many exciting subjects and tackles topical and sensitive issues face-on. The lectures are thought-provoking, raise debate and inform.

Our successful programme started in 2006 and attracts large audiences from across the region. The lectures are free and open to all.

Our 2015/16 Series has concluded. Details of dates and speakers confirmed for the 2016/17 Series appear on our Distinguished Lectures events page. Online booking will open in August.

Selected lectures are filmed and put online approximately one week after the event. To view lecture videos, choose the relevant event from our Past Distinguished Lectures page then click on the multimedia tab.

For any other queries, or if you experience any difficulties with the online booking process, please email the Events Team.
