Perfect storm heads for University of Bradford


The perfect storm visits the University of Bradford soon in the shape of author and commentator Will Hutton.

He will deliver the Vice-Chancellor’s Annual Lecture on Wednesday 26 October 2016 at the Norcroft Centre Auditorium at the University’s city centre campus.

The lecture is part of the University’s 50th anniversary celebrations. Registration and refreshments will open at 17.15, and the lecture will run from 18.00-19.15. To book a free place please go to

The lecture is entitled ‘The Perfect Storm: The Multiple Crises Overrunning Britain’.

Will is Principal of Hertford College Oxford, writer, television and radio commentator on economic, financial and business issues and Chair of the Big Innovation Centre.

Will's career and experience in education, politics, media and as an author of books including ‘The State We're In’, one of the top-selling books on political economy since 1945, will provide an excellent basis for this anniversary lecture.

The lecture is part of a series hosted by the Vice-Chancellor of the University of Bradford, Professor Brian Cantor, which brings distinguished speakers who are experts in their fields to Bradford.
