  • £12 (£10 FoBH & u25s)

We are delighted to announce Sir John Tusa in conversation with Clare Lynch in our latest event in the Lifelines series.


Sir John is a British arts administrator, and radio and television journalist. From 1980 to 1986 he was a main presenter of BBC 2's Newsnight programme. From 1986 to 1993 he was managing director of the BBC World Service. 

After more than a decade as managing director of the Barbican Centre in London and appointments at the University of the Arts London and the Clore Leadership Programme, Tusa is now Chair of the European Union Youth Orchestra and a dedicated advocate of the arts as necessity not luxury.

In his latest publication, Making a Noise: Getting It Right, Getting It Wrong in Life, Arts and Broadcasting, Sir John discusses his remarkable life, from his arrival as a little boy in Britain on the eve of World War Two to his life in the arts. 


Tickets £12 (£10 FoBH & u25s) plus an additional buffet of cheese, charcuterie and nibbles with wine after the talk for £12.

Please note the "Cheese & Charcuterie" ticket does NOT include admission to the talk.
