Sun 05 Nov 2017

This event is free but tickets must be registered in advance, as this is a free event we operate on an over-booking policy. Please arrive in good time, latecomers will not be admitted until the interval. 

Navy Board Rooms
South Wing

A special matinee edition of the series of thought-provoking talks in which the speakers air their thinking on the trends, ideas, interests and passions that affect culture and society.

The speakers for the afternoon will include former army intelligence officer Andy Owen who believes the army should give soldiers more training in ethics after he found philosophy helped him cope in the complex war zones of Iraq and Afghanistan. Further speakers for the afternoon are TBC.

 A live recording will be taken on the evening and will subsequently be broadcast on Radio 4.

 Doors will open at 13.30 for a prompt 14.00 start. Please note that as this is a live recording, latecomers may not be admitted until the first available interval.

As tickets are free, Somerset House works with a policy of overbooking Four Thought recordings. Seats are allocated to ticketholders on a first-come, first-served basis: we aim to accommodate everybody, but in instances of high attendance unfortunately cannot guarantee admission.
