Here at Warminster we organise the popular Thomas Arnold Lecture Series throughout the year.
The School and local community are provided with access to fascinating and thought-provoking speakers from a diverse range of careers and backgrounds who share their interests and expertise.
Recent speakers have included Lord Peter Hennessy, a leading historian and political scientist, Nick Jenkins, founder of Moonpig.com and member of the Dragon’s Den television panel, Michael Eavis the founder of the Glastonbury Festival, Sir Hayden Philips, a leading civil servant and Chris Lubbe, the former ANC activist and Nelson Mandela’s bodyguard.
Lectures conclude with a Q&A session, time to meet the speaker and post-lecture discussions over drinks and canapés.
Suggestions or volunteers to speak as part of this programme are most welcome. Please contact the TA Lecture series organiser, Graeme McQueen.
