    Hi All, Michael Sandel will be giving a talk entitled Public Philosophy on Wednesday 30 April at 6.30pm. It takes place at the LSE. I’ll be going to this so if anyone fancies me joining please let me know (via this message board) and I’ll put the event up as a meet-up to remind you of the date etc. Admission is free but I guess as they expect it to be popular it’s ticketed so you have to order your tickets in advance on Thursday 24th April…. Further details below. http://www.lse.ac.uk/publicEvents/events/2014/04/20140430t1830vOT.aspx

    Following on from our very interesting discussion about Michael Sandel's book- he will be giving a lecture at Tate Modern on Thursday 27 March at 7pm. Tickets £12. I will be attending and perhaps those interested can have a drink/food at the Tate restaurant afterwards.

      Hi Caroline,
      That's sounds like a fab idea, I remember Kay saying Sandel is a very charismatic speaker. Shall I put you down as host so you make the talk an event on our club wall? That way you can put it out as an invitation to the wider group as well.

      That is a good idea, unfortunately, after checking with the Tate, the lecture is now cancelled. But will check future lecture possibilities.

      Jennifer - I have extended the group to 10 people which is the maximum we allow, but as Sabeen asked to join the wait list ahead of you she has been invited to take the next spot.
      Sabeen - Like Polly you on been invited on to the main list with little notice so you may have made other plans, could please confirm that you still wish to come.
