We are kicking off 2023 with a new series of Regional Speakeasies around the UK. Each event will be addressed by a senior member of Free Speech Union staff to discuss Why Free Speech is Worth Fighting For. It’s your chance to find out why the individuals involved in FSU are so passionate about defending free speech and how our work is developing across many different fronts, from case work to campaigns, legislation to original research. It is also an opportunity for us to thank members in person for their continued support, to meet new members, introduce others to the work that we do and encourage them to join us.
Speaker: Toby Young, FSU Founder and General Secretary
Toby Young is the founder and general secretary of the Free Speech Union. He has been a journalist for nearly 40 years and is an associate editor of the Spectator, where he’s written a weekly column since 1998. He is editor in chief of a blog called DailySceptic.org that has received over 40 million page views. He is the author of several books, including How to Lose Friends & Alienate People, and co-founded the Knowledge Schools Trust.
There will, of course, be plenty of time for discussion, as well as socialising with fellow free speech supporters.
Doors open 7pm, speaker and discussion starts at 7.30pm.
Speakeasies are free for FSU members. We ask non-members to pay £2.00. Please book your places as soon as possible and do let us know if you need to cancel so that we can release your ticket to somebody else.
