Sunday Concerts: Dante Quartet & Brian Thorsett + Pre-Concert Talk
Join the Dante Quartet and Brian Thorsett for an evening of Beethoven and a selection of British works by Ian Venables, Ivor Gurney and Edward Elgar. This concert is preceded by a talk with Robert Hugill.
In this online talk, barrister Sam Fowles was part of the team that took the Prime Minister to court when he illegally prorogued Parliament. Fowles helped reveal the rot at the heart of a trusted national institution. We shouldn’t have to take our rulers to court just to get them to follow the rules. At a crucial juncture for British governance, Fowles urges us not to take our freedoms for granted. This talk was recorded in August 2022. Conway Hall, London: Where Ethics Matter.
