Our lectures offer a platform for speakers in the public eye to address key issues in society.
Our annual festival features interviews, panel discussions and lively debates, capturing stories and issues from the world of religion which are making the news. Media professionals including journalists and broadcasters have the opportunity to hear new ideas, find new contacts, and explore news stories in greater depth.
Keynote speakers have included Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury; Cardinal Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster; James Harding, former BBC Director of News; Rabbi Lord Jonathan Sacks; and the screenwriter Frank Cottrell-Boyce. Well-known broadcasters have chaired and taken part in panel discussions.
