Event Details

The Mayor’s Annual Lecture and Panel Debate
Fri 20 November 2015, 18.00-20.00
Great Hall, Wills Memorial Building, University of Bristol
Free, but booking required

In this third annual Mayor’s lecture, and the culmination of the first Festival of the Future City, George Ferguson will reflect on Bristol in 2015, the city’s progress during European Green Capital, and present a long-term vision for the city. Following the lecture, he will debate the future of the city with Jaya Chakrabarti (local business leader and chair of Bristol’s elected mayor campaign), Phil Gibby (Director, Arts Council England South West) and Neha Mehta and Thanushan Jeyarajah, Bristol’s Youth Mayors. Introduced by Professor Hugh Brady, Vice-Chancellor, University of Bristol. Prior to the lecture, Ian McMillan will read a specially commissioned poem.

We have restricted the number of tickets that can be booked to one per transaction. This has been introduced in an effort to stop people automatically booking multiple tickets without confirming if they have guests to go with them. We hope this will help to limit the number of 'no shows' at the events, which currently run at around 35% of bookings. We will monitor the situation. If you need more than one ticket, you can click on the booking link again. The little extra effort involved will hopefully put off those who don’t really need more than one, but not those who do.

Please ensure you use the correct email address. This is where your ticket will be sent. If you do not provide the correct address, you will not receive the acknowledgement email or ticket.
