Half-price tickets to this compelling evening conversation

Why Buy? Tickets to a conversation on civilisation between two leading authorities on the subject – exclusively half-price (£15) for Time Out readers. When is it? Monday May 14 at 7pm. Why buy? What is civilisation? Who gets to say who is civilised and who is uncivilised? In this evening conversation, two great minds will come together to talk about this much-contested phrase at UCL’s Logan Hall. Together, they’ll discuss how the civilisation has been portrayed through art and religion from prehistory to the present day. Celebrated author Mary Beard is a professor of classics at Newnham College, Cambridge, as well as the classics editors of the TLS. She is the author of best-selling books including ‘Women & Power: A Manifesto’ and ‘Pompeii: The Life of Roman Town’. Simon Callow is an actor, writer and director who is known for films like ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’, as well as his acclaimed one-man theatre shows including ‘The Importance of Being Oscar’ and ‘The Mystery of Charles Dickens’.
