When they go low, we go high
January 25 @ 6:45 pm - 7:45 pm
As part of a new series of lectures and talks at St Peter’s, we welcome Philip Collins, leader writer and columnist for The Times, former speech writer for Tony Blair, and chairman of the board of trustees at the Demos think tank, who will be offering a passionate defence of the power of good public speaking to propagate and protect democracy, drawing from his new book When they go low, we go high: Speeches that shape the world – and why we need them.
‘For all those who believe in the politics of principle and hope this a wonderful reminder that they do not always lose. For all those who despair that politics can ever be inspiring again this is a must-read to shake you out of your misery.’ Paddy Ashdown
Includes performances of excerpts from some of the great speeches in history, together with analysis by Philip Collins, in conversation with journalist Jane Fryer. £5 entry on the door.
