The 2018 Longford Lecture

Details of the 2018 Longford Lecture will be announced on this website in early September of each year, when booking opens. You cannot book tickets before that point.  Follow this link to read our 2017 Longford Lecture, “Charity or Justice!” by award-winning film-maker Ken Loach, or to see video highlights of the event. Or you can hear the whole event as broadcast on National Prison Radio.
