An Annual Lecture on Life and Literature from the North of England
Richard grew up in Northumbria and was a life-long champion of the North of England. He wanted to showcase northern talent, helping to alter attitudes and to celebrate the wealth of culture he found there. The annual lecture, which will run for a minimum of 10 years, will provide an opportunity to invite writers, poets and artists from the North of England to Hughes Hall, celebrating this rich culture of the North to a new audience.
