Each year, the Mile End Institute invites a distinguished politician to reflect on the issues of the day in honour of our patron, Peter Hennessy. This year, Lord Hennessy will be in conversation with former Labour leader Neil Kinnock.

The event is open to the public and there will be opportunities for audience Q&A. The lecture will start at 7pm and run until 8.15pm and will be followed by a drinks reception to which all are welcome.

Lord Kinnock served as a Member of Parliament from 1970 until 1995, and was the Leader of the Labour Party and Leader of the Opposition from 1983 until 1992. He went on to become the Vice-President of the European Commission under Romano Prodi from 1999 to 2004. He is one of the most informed and experienced speakers on the Labour Party, as well as British and European politics.
