Jonathan Dimbleby to deliver RIBA's first annual lecture

  • Comment

Jonathan Dimbleby is to give the RIBA's first annual lecture to an audience including MPs and others invited to raise the institute's profile.

Dimbleby will deliver the lecture - 'a polemic' - on 1 May at 6.30pm at Portland Place in the new initiative to involve 'movers and shakers' including politicians, journalists, architects and clients. The institute will also use the high-profile event to hand out its latest honorary fellowships to recipients such as Sir Neil Cossons.

RIBA chief executive Richard Hastilow said the annual lecture will be 'to a well-informed general audience with interests and involvement in the future of the built environment.We aim to address a range of key aspects - social, economic and environmental. As a lively commentator on our society, and with particular enthusiasm for design and sustainability issues, Dimbleby is well-placed to stimulate debate.'

The writer and broadcaster has written extensively on Prince Charles and is vice-president of the Council for the Protection of Rural England.

Some 130 tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis, priced £15 each, from the RIBA Gallery ticket line on 020 7307 3699.
