It was with great sadness that the Lecture Club learned of the passing of our figurehead, Baroness Shirley Williams of Crosby. A pioneer and tenacious campaigner, she was the very essence of what it means to be a radical politician. In case you missed it, Lord Dick Newby, Leader of the Liberal Democrats in the House of Lords, shares his tribute to a true legend, who was trusted and admired by millions.
Liberal Democrat members and other progressives can now join an exclusive lecture club to challenge and engage with some of the most original and innovative thinkers of our time.
Launched today, The Shirley Williams Lectures will offer a platform to specialists from a range of fields to share their ideas and vision for the future. Club members will be given the opportunity to consider and discuss how we can tackle some of the biggest questions facing the world.
