Alan Davies, comedian and actor, and Nicholas Parsons, veteran Radio 4 broadcaster, will be among a panel of distinguished guests debating The Future of British Culture on Tuesday 18 March at LSE in a Question Time Society debate.

LSE SU Question Time Society is the largest society in LSE and one of the most vibrant and popular. Past guests have included Ken Livingstone, Noel Edmonds, Bianca Jagger and John Redwood MP. The panel that will face questions from the diverse and cosmopolitan LSE student body on Tuesday (18 March) is as follows:

  • Andrew Housley, director of Commission for Racial Equality (Midlands)

  • Bill Oddie, 'Britain's most famous birdwatcher', writer and comedian

  • Nicholas Parsons, veteran Radio 4 presenter

Questions from the audience are likely to focus on topical subjects and events such as the dumbing down of the popular press, the impact of fundamentalism on British culture and the continuing integration of ethnic minorities into British society.

This event is for LSE students and staff only but there are limited press tickets available. Seats will be filled on a first come, first served basis with no ticket required for LSE students and staff.
