Greece versus Rome, with Boris Johnson and Mary Beard

It was a once in a lifetime intellectual battle between two of our patrons, produced by Intelligence Squared, who donated £10 for every ticket sold. Boris Johnson, Mayor of London and ardent classicist, made the case for Greece; while Mary Beard OBE, Professor of Classics at Cambridge and redoubtable media star, championed Rome’. This event, in November 2015, was so popular it sold out within days.
