We opened the library yesterday for the first event of the new year – the Radio 4 debate, hosted by Melvyn Bragg, on the Value of Culture. We had a packed library to hear the views of panellists Sir Christopher Frayling, Matt Ridley (5th Viscount Ridley), and Dr Tiffany Jenkins. It was Lord Bragg who had suggested that the debate be held at the Lit & Phil, which he described as an “extraordinarily distinguished place” that had always been at the heart of culture in the city.
