Thu, 22 October 7:30pm

Writer, broadcaster and journalist Stuart Maconie delivers a compelling case for Britain’s welfare state through a characteristic blend of memoir, history and musings.  A timely and provocative look at hospital care, working conditions, student grants, free eye tests and affordable housing, arguing for a future founded on something more than profit and loss and championing a fairer and more equitable society.
