The Making of a Modern Parliament

A lecture on the Speakership, the modernisation of Parliament, and the importance of opening up our democratic processes. Followed by a Q&A. 

We are very excited to announce the return of the much loved civic event – the Colchester Lecture! This returning event, run with support from title sponsor Birkett Long Solicitors, will invite nationally recognised speakers to the Mercury Theatre to engage local audience with relevant and current topics.

This October we are thrilled to be welcoming Rt Hon John Bercow, Speaker of the House of Commons and Member of Parliament for Buckingham.
