The Badock Hall Talks 2017

Two very different evenings featuring former Badock Hall students

Tuesday 25 April 2017, 8 pm

"Parliament and Brexit: where we are and where we're going - a constitutional /legal perspective" - Sir Stephen Laws (Badock Hall 1969 - 1970)

The UK has initiated Article 50 and has two years in which to leave the European Union. The UK has formulated its Great Repeal Bill, which will see everything the EU legislates on repealed and replaced by UK equivalents.

Sir Stephen's talk will cover:

  • Article 50, the withdrawal bill and the Miller case.
  • Parliamentary scrutiny of the Brexit process and of the negotiations with the EU.
  • The Great Repeal Bill - what it needs to do and what does it actually do?
  • What happens in Parliament if a deal is done or if no deal is done?
  • Where is all this heading - what are the implications for Parliamentary politics?

Thursday 25 May 2017, 9 pm

The Harry and Chris Show - Harry Baker (Badock Hall 2011 - 2012) & Chris Reed

Having played together in various forms for over 10 years, World Poetry Slam Champion Harry Baker teams up with BFF/Jazz Musician Chris Read as the imaginatively titled ‘Harry and Chris’.

After a debut sell-out run of ‘The Harry and Chris Show’ at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2016, they are bringing their brand of poetry, music, love and laughter all around the country.

“A combination of catchy hooks and breathtaking verbal ingenuity makes this a winning hour… The quality and quantity of laughs on offer is generous and yet the show is cynicism-free, the tone unapologetically feel-good.” **** BroadwayBaby
