  • Arts and society

Watch Ian Leslie, Katy Balls and Maya Goodfellow in our latest RSA Spotlight - the edits which take you straight to the heart of the event!

2017 has had its fair share of news – Donald Trump’s inauguration; a snap election and subsequent coalition in the UK; the triggering of Article 50 and ongoing Brexit negotiations; the horrific Westminster, London Bridge and Manchester arena terror attacks; the Grenfell Tower tragedy; the cultural shift engendered by the Weinstein and Westminster scandals, and subsequent #metoo campaigns; Mugabe’s resignation…and countless other significant political and cultural events. Our group of expert reviewers - including Ian Leslie, author of Born Liars - reflect on what has been a turbulent year in national and international political, social and cultural events.
