Pitzhanger Perspectives… Rory Stewart OBE
Rory Stewart has led a fascinatingly broad life of public service as British diplomat, author, explorer, academic and politician, as well as tutor to Princes William and Harry. His unique experience as a Minister, including International Development Secretary, and former Conservative leadership and London Mayoral candidate, offers rare insights into the state of British democracy. Hear him discuss his thoughts on British identity, government, community and constitution today.
Sir John Soane used Pitzhanger Manor to entertain his wide circle of friends, celebrities and potential clients, bringing together opera singers and politicians, academics and poets at eclectic dinners. Inspired by this spirit of Pitzhanger as a forum for interesting encounters and enlightening debate, Pitzhanger Perspectives is a new series of conversations with contemporary thinkers. This first set of talks will be in conversation with Sir Sherard Cowper-Coles, Chair of Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery Trust.
