Radio 4 in association with RSA
The next in the series of Radio 4's exciting new talks strand – FOUR THOUGHT – takes place in the RSA's Benjamin Franklin Room on Wednesday 5 December from 6-7.30pm.
Combining two of the trademark elements of both the RSA and Radio 4 - big ideas and evocative storytelling - speakers will be invited to take to the stage ready to air their latest thinking on the trends, ideas, interests and passions that affect our culture and society. Talks will be unscripted, thought-provoking and entertaining, with a personal dimension.
Speakers will include: Ocean rower Sally Kettle, on hope; founder of Afrikids Georgie Fienberg, on why ‘stop giving to charity’ is the best message a charity can give; director of the Samosa Anwar Akhtar, on how Pakistan needs to look to its Asian heritage for help with its future and the role British Pakistanis can play in this; and game designer Tom Armitage, on our relationships with ‘code’ and with computers.
FOUR THOUGHT will be broadcast at a later date on BBC Radio 4.
Places for this very special event are strictly limited and we anticipate extremely high demand.
