City Lit Perspectives presents Grayson Perry: Divided Britain at the Guildhall’s Livery Hall

Story added 13th May 2019


We are thrilled to host Grayson Perry CBE RA on the subject of Divided Britain in the Guildhall’s Livery Hall on Wednesday 3rd July as part of our City Lit Perspectives series.

Grayson is an avid supporter of City Lit, having been awarded our City Lit Lifetime Fellowship Award in 2018. Speaking on the subject of Divided Britain, Grayson will be discussing the role that the arts and creativity can play in narrowing, or widening the gaps in society. Perry’s work has varied thematically from subjects such as identity, rites of passage and taste through to grief and perceptions of modern day masculinity. His inimitable take is sure to be as entertaining as it is insightful and we are delighted to host him during our Centenary year of celebrations.

Date: Wednesday 3 July 2019 

Time: 18:30-20:00

Location: Livery Hall Guildhall, 71 Basinghall Street, EC2V 7HH, London

Tickets: £40 via City Lit - Book online via Eventbrite>

September 2019 marks 100 years since City Lit opened its doors to London and throughout 2019 we have an exciting calendar of events and activities taking place at both City Lit and other venues and institutions across London.

All profit from the event will be going to our Student Bursary. At City Lit, we believe that financial difficulties should not be a barrier to accessing education. Your support for the Student Bursary will mean that a fellow Londoner can access education which could change their life for the better.
