“Ooops, I did it again …”. Cicero, the Philippics and the Last-Chance-Saloon

ELLIOT LECTURE – Thursday, 23 JANUARY 2020

The Departments of Classics at Loughborough School Foundation would like to invite parents, teachers, and students to this year’s Elliott Lecture, which will host a lecture given by Nottingham Classical Association.

Dr Ed Bispham, lecturer of Ancient History at Brasenose College, Oxford, is going to talk to us on the topic of “Ooops, I did it again …”.  Cicero, the Philippics and the Last-Chance-Saloon. This lecture will appeal to all students studying Philippics as an A Level set text, however, it will also be of interest to all curious about ancient history as it will offer a brilliant insight into the turbulent end of the Roman Republic.

The lecture will begin at 17:30 and finish at 18:30 and will take place in the Lecture Room at Loughborough Grammar School. There will be refreshments served in Barrow Block from 17:00.

The event is FREE.  For bookings, access information, and other enquiries please email me directly on a.henderson@lsf.org.

If you are bringing a school party, can you please email Mrs Kelly White (k.white@lsf.org) with your booking request and approximate number of students by 18 January 2020.

We hope to see as many of you as possible there.
