“If voting changed anything, they’d abolish it!”
Whatever one thinks of Ken Livingstone, it must be acknowledged that he has had the most extraordinary political life. From staging a coup of the GLC to winning the London Mayoral Elections as an independent candidate, Ken has forged his own inimitable path and political philosophy.
In this no-holds-barred conversation, Peter Hitchens will place Ken’s political philosophy on trial. Join us for what promises to be an electric exchange, followed by a panel QnA.

A note on access & live-stream:
The event is to take place on the second floor of the building. As a building in the conservation area which is still developing as a venue, some areas have very limited or no accessibility for anyone with mobility impairments.
There is a mechanical stairclimber which is suitable for certain wheelchairs. We need to advise that this is a far from satisfactory means of climbing and that some wheelchair users may not be happy using this equipment.
We ask anyone visiting or user the building to please check and confirm individual requirements prior to any event. We are happy to help and offer advice.
For those who cannot attend we will plan to do a live-stream of the event. Please check our social media account for more details on the day.
