Thomas Sutton Lecture: Live online

If you were unable to join us last year for the annual Thomas Sutton Lecture when High Court Judge Sir Mark Warby gave his fascinating talk to a full house at the Charterhouse – now is the time to book to see him giving the lecture again live online.

Titled ‘More and more – law & the Charterhouse’, Sir Mark will be presenting his own research on how closely the Charterhouse has been associated with law throughout history. His interest in the subject was first sparked in 2017 when he arrived at the Charterhouse as ‘consort’ to the Master, Ann Kenrick. Sir Thomas More is perhaps the most famous legal mind to be associated with the Charterhouse, but there are many others, as Sir Mark’s lecture will reveal.

Join us for a compelling and illustrated insight into law and its development in UK and USA, and an array of its practitioners, some distinguished and some less so, and their connections with the Charterhouse over the centuries.

Sir Mark Warby 
Sir Mark Warby is judge in charge of the Queen’s Bench Division’s Media and Communications List. Before joining the judiciary he was a QC specialising in media law litigation – mainly defamation and privacy – and sports law – disciplinary matters and arbitration. He is joint editor and a co-author of The Law of Privacy and the Media (OUP) and a contributor to other legal textbooks.

We need your support!  We are asking for you to book your place at this Lecture by donation.  We have been closed to the public since March to ensure the maximum protection for the residents of the almshouse and care home at the Charterhouse.  This has meant the charity no longer has vital income from our tours, events and venue hire.  Your support at this time is really important and would be sincerely welcomed.
