Festival talks by Chris Patten


Generously sponsored by

Lord Patten, one of the most distinguished Tory ‘Wets’ of the 1980s and 1990s, will talk about his time in office in the Conservative Party, as the last Governor of Hong Kong, European Commissioner, Chairman of the BBC and now Chancellor of Oxford University. From Northern Ireland to Asia, he will show us unexpected sides of many of the great figures of the day.
