The Harkness Birthday Dinner 2019 will once again be held at Brown’s Bar and Brasserie, Covent Garden. Brown’s is located at 82-84 St Martin’s Lane, WC2N 4AG, a short walk north from Trafalgar Square and English National Opera. Nearest tube: Leicester Square. Browns is the old Westminster County Court, and our dinner will once again be held in the splendid Judge’s Chambers, who have looked after us all very well in the past.

She chaired Camden & Islington Community Health Services NHS Trust from 1993–1997, was Chief Executive of the King’s Fund from 1997- 2004, Chancellor of the University of Ulster 1994-2000 and Bloomberg Professor of Divinity at Harvard University in 2006.

She writes and broadcasts frequently on a variety of social and religious issues, including her book ‘Not Dead Yet – a Manifesto for Old Age’. She will speak to us about why we don’t like discussing issues that matter to us most, like our mortality and our mental health!

We invite Fellows and their guests to book for what should prove a most enjoyable occasion, as we toast Edward Harkness and listen to Baroness Julia Neuberger. The cost is £65 per head for members and guests. It includes a three-course meal with ample amounts of wine, and prosecco before dinner.
