Hacked Off’s 5th Annual Leveson Lecture with Baroness Warsi

Join us on Tuesday 14th November 2017 for our 5th Leveson Lecture in central London to be delivered by Baroness Warsi, former Chairman of the Conservative Party and the first Muslim to be appointed to the cabinet.

The Lecture will take place on 14th November 2017 from 6.30pm close to Oxford Circus tube station in Central London, and will be hosted by the University of Westminster. Tickets are free but must be reserved to guarantee your place.


Just yesterday Steve Coogan finally settled his hacking claim against Trinity Mirror Group, and said that the second part of the Leveson Inquiry must proceed in order that various news executives could be properly scrutinised. After many years of denial and prolonged litigation, the Mirror conceded that “he and other victims should not have been denied the truth for so long”.

Five years on from the historic cross-party agreement on press regulation, come and hear Baroness Warsi talk about what she thinks the government must do now.

Hacked Off in partnership with the Oxford Playhouse presents…

John Cleese: In Conversation 

Join actor, comedian and writer, John Cleese as he talks about his life, work and current medical problems.

John Cleese is a founder of modern comedy. Together with the other members of Monty Python he created a surrealist style that continues to influence the comedians of today, whilst his character Basil Fawlty has gone down in history as one of the greatest comic character creations.

Since he started using Twitter as a way of avoiding the British Press, John has shared his thoughts on everything from Trump and banks to Scientism and cat recipes. Recently, he has become a passionate advocate for the implementation of the Leveson reforms, so that people unable to afford legal action can get inexpensive correction of Press untruths.

For an extra £50 you can join us at an exclusive Post-Show Reception celebrating the work of Oxford Playhouse and Hacked Off. With a glass of bubbly, canapes and the opportunity to meet John in person, it’s the perfect way to end your evening.
