National Debates: Death - final matters

Thu 24 November, 5.45pm
Running Time: 1 hour

Death is a subject that society finds difficult to discuss, but a panel will attempt to do just that, by looking at questions such as the language we use when dealing with disease and illness; the impact on those left behind; the digital legacy; end of life and hospice care; and euthanasia and dignity in dying choices.

With Andrew McDonald, Chair of the Board of Scope, the disability charity, and former CEO of the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA), Dr Kathryn Mannix, Consultant in Palliative Medicine at Newcastle Hospitals, and The Revd Jeffrey Risbridger, Assistant Curate at St John’s and St Andrew’s, Waterloo.

Chaired by Nick Robinson, journalist and presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Today programme.

Tickets £6 (£5 concessions)

Afterwards at 6.50pm (for 35 mins) in the Cottesloe Room off the Dorfman foyer, join Brian Lobel, artist and co-writer of the book for The Pacifist's Guide to the War on Cancer, and the bardeblah team, for the lively and sociable debating game, bardeblah, where you are encouraged to suspend your judgment, enjoy the rhetoric, and appreciate both sides of the argument! 

Tickets for bardeblah are free, just turn up on the night. For more information click here
