The Edward Heath University Lectures 2021-24

To mark the fiftieth anniversary of the 1970-74 Heath government, the Sir Edward Heath Charitable Foundation – which owns and runs Arundells, Heath’s house in the Cathedral Close, Salisbury – is organising a rolling series of keynote lectures on recurrent issues in British politics that often remain as live today as they were half a century ago.

Major commentators or practitioners will talk about what happened in Britain in the first half of the 1970s, and how and why so many of the questions of that era remain unresolved today. The series will take place in universities across the country to maximise the opportunities of a new generation to learn about the politics of the ‘day before yesterday’.
