About us

The Rt Hon. David Lammy MP

The Rt Hon. David Lammy MP is a huge advocate of adult education and a great supporter of City Lit. He is the leading voice in parliament and beyond in raising awareness of the importance of adult education and the critical need for a national strategy. His deep personal commitment and understanding of the positive effects of lifelong learning comes from his mother, whose life was transformed by adult education.  We are extremely fortunate to have such a strong champion in David. David was our Guest of Honour at the recent City Lit Awards 2018, where he presented students and staff with their awards and he received his own City Lit Lifetime Fellowship Award.
