This Year’s Lecture

The Lord Caradon Lectures Trust – A Conversation with Zeinab Badawi @ 7pm on 21 May 2024

Trustees are delighted to announce that Zeinab Badawi has agreed to be our online speaker on 21 May on the subject of “Africa Today: Perceptions and Opportunities” – this event will be hosted by Dame Judith Macgregor and facilitated Plymouth Marjon University.  You may recall that we conducted a similar event with Kim Darroch during Covid.

Zeinab is President of the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) and a very well-known broadcast journalist and filmmaker.  Her book entitled “An African History of Africa: From the Dawn of Humanity to Independence” was published last week.

To watch the conversation all you have to do is click on the Marjon Facebook page at and ignore the request to set up an account!  The link will go live at 7pm. You can also pose a question in advance by emailing (by 13 May at the latest) or on the night via the chat facility on your screen.

Finally, a date for your diaries – we have managed to secure Sir Mark Lyall-Grant as our live speaker for this year on 13 November at Plymouth Marjon University.  He was a former ambassador to the UN and National Security Adviser.
