The F.L. Attenborough Lecture
to be given by
The Hon. Michael Attenborough CBE.  D Litt.

 Young people are advised by ministers to avoid opting for artistic subjects, as they supposedly limit employment possibilities. Which raises two vital questions. Is this true? And is the sole purpose of Education to establish and increase a graduate’s employability?

The event is free to members. It is suggested that non-members give a donation of £5.00p (students £2.50p).
