The philosopher and political activist Bertrand Russell died fifty years ago today.
We will celebrate his life with afternoon tea (something he favoured) with a talk on Russell, emphasising his connections to Nottingham.
Speaker: Tony Simpson (Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation), who will be joined by Tom Unterrainer (also BRPF) and Alva White who will talk about why Russell is worth reading today. We will also play some rare recordings of Bertie, so that he is with us on the day.
Tickets: £5 including tea and cake, and a complementary copy of The Spokesman journal – a special issue devoted to Bertrand Russell

Here’s Bertie with James Baldwin, and a slightly more extravagant tea than we might be offering!
