Have politicians lost the art of persuasion?
in association with the New Statesman
Monday 19 March
A speech can inspire crowds, set out a vision – and change hearts and minds. But in the era of Trump’s tweets and social media soundbites, is there a place for great oratory?
As the Almeida launches its third series of digital film project Figures of Speech, join Helen Lewis as she chairs a panel including Amanda Abbington and Sam Leith to discuss what makes great rhetoric – and whether carefully crafted words still have a place in public life.
Tickets £5 | (Further panellists to be announced.)
