The 2018 Longford Lecture Announced

The 2018 Longford Lecture takes place on Wednesday November 28 at 6.30pm at Church House, Westminster. The broadcaster Jon Snow, one of our trustees, will chair a panel discussion on the theme ‘Why People Stop Doing Crime’. He will be joined by three current Longford Scholars, ex-prisoners who are studying for degrees with the trust’s support, plus the acclaimed actor Michael Balogun (pictured below), who took up drama while inside. Together – with contributions from distinguished voices in the audience – they will set out proposals to reduce the prison population and promote the rehabilitation of offenders. It will be broadcast live on National Prison Radio.
