Joanna Lumley OBE FRGS

‘I am a great fan of Latin. I love it. I did it at school at both O-level and A-level, and I am a great supporter of Classics for All because apart from anything else Latin is the basis of our language and it gives you the basis of all the other Latin languages – French and Italian and Spanish. It helps you understand them and it carries knowledge with it, like a suitcase. It’s beautiful. It’s brilliant.’
