Wilsons sponsor sold out lecture with Ken Clarke

14 July 2022

On Thursday 30th June Wilsons was delighted to be the sponsor for the 2022 Sir Edward Heath Annual Lecture with Ken Clarke and special guests.

The event was held at the Salisbury Cathedral followed by a drink reception at the former home of Sir Edward Heath KG MBE, Arundells, in the Cathedral Close.

This year's lecturer was Lord Kenneth Clarke, who was a whip during the Heath government before serving as Education, Health and Home Secretaries, Chancellor of the Exchequer and Lord Chancellor, under subsequent Conservative prime ministers. Ken was joined by historians Dominic Sandbrook and Vernon Bogdanor, as well as the former Cabinet Secretary, Lord Robin Butler, who worked with Sir Edward Heath at Number Ten.

The subject of the lecture was "Back to the Future: What the politics of the 1970s has to teach Britain today" and the popular event was sold out with over 400 guests.

Wilsons Partners, Anthony Edwards and Ben Thornton, attended the event and enjoyed meeting Ken and many of the guests.

Arundells holds many events throughout the year with more information on their website.
