Right at the end of this year (29th December to be exact) we celebrate teh 200th aniversary of the birth in Liverpool of William Ewart Gladstone.
Quite a few events will be taking place.
I've just heard about one of the earliest which sounds well like attending.
It's one of the Roscoe Lectures on 27th October at 5pm.
Lord Alton will be deliverign a lecture called
Gladstone - Son of Liverpool: Scourge of Tyrants.
The Roscoe lectures are great. And they are free. If you are interested the contact person is Barbara Mace at The Liverpool John Moores University Roscoe Foundation for Cititzenship.
