The Sir Winston Churchill Memorial Lectures are hosted annually by the BLS. Over the years we have had the privilege to host a series of eminent speakers from the British political, economic or cultural world.
Past speakers have included: The Rt. Hon. Margaret Thatcher, former British Prime Minister; The Rt. Hon. Neil Kinnock, former Vice-President of the European Commission; The Rt. Hon. Christopher Patten, former European Commissioner for External Relations; The Rt. Hon. Douglas Hurd CBE MP, former British Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs; and Eddie George, former Governor of the Bank of England.
The speakers gave a lecture to the members of the BLS on their topic of choice, generally but not always a European theme.
Further details of the revival of the Sir Winston Churchill Memorial Lectures will follow.
