An Audience with Baroness Shirley Williams
When she was a child, Shirley Williams believed that being an MP would give her the power to bring about all kinds of good things for society. She has now retired from the House of Lords after 50 years in frontline politics making sure that some good things were indeed brought about.
On her retirement, Tom McNally, the former leader of the Lib Dems in the Lords, said: “Throughout her life, Shirley has made an outstanding contribution to the politics of this country. Her bravery, determination and commitment to her beliefs has benefited both parliamentary debate and public discourse for the last five decades.”
Baroness Shirley will talk about her mother - Vera Brittain - whose activities helped shape the political landscape in the early years of the 20th Century, as well as the issue of women’s suffrage.
Join us for an evening with a political legend whose commitment to making a difference has created real change throughout the United Kingdom.
