Event Details

UCL Centre for Transport Studies presents Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson DBE talking about the politics of accessible transport. Tanni is one of Britain’s greatest paralympic athletes, winning 16 Paralympic medals in five Paralympic Games, including 11 gold and 6 times winner of the London Wheelchair Marathon over a career spanning 16 years. Now retired from competitive sport, Tanni’s current roles include membership of the boards of London Marathon and Transport for London. In March 2010 Tanni was made a crossbench peer, becoming Baroness Grey-Thompson of Eaglescliffe in the County of Durham.

The event will start with registration and a tea and coffee at 6.00pm followed by the talk at 6.30 and a wine reception between 7.30 and 8.30.

Because there are likely to be a number of wheelchair users attending, it would be very helpful if users would  check with the organisers before booking so that everybody who wishes to attend can be accommodated.
