Heffers' 2016 Classics Forum
Sat 29 October 2016, 10:00 – 18:00 BST
We are delighted to announce the much-anticipated return of the Heffers Classics Forum!
Join us on 29th October 2016 as we hear from a host of fascinating speakers from the world of Classics, including Peter Adamson, Paul Cartledge, Daisy Dunn, Adrian Goldsworthy, Edith Hall, Natalie Haynes, Gideon Nisbet, Harry Sidebottom, David Stuttard, Oliver Taplin, Jerry Toner, Anthony Verity and Tim Whitmarsh.
There will also be a balloon debate: if you had the last surviving copies of classical works in your balloon basket and the balloon was over the sea, which would you throw over the side? The Gallic War, Antigone, Epigrams, Lysistrata, Philoctetes? Each speakerin the debate will make their case and then you get to vote!
