Who can attend?
All are welcome. We very much recommend reading The Stopping Places in advance of the talk but it is by no means a requirement. Anyone interested in language, identity and culture is welcome to join what will be a fascinating, inclusive and eye-opening event."
Damian will give a talk and it will be followed by a Q&A where you are able to voice your opinions/responses/questions. It's a hybrid event, hosted by a bookshop in Bermondsey, but also broadcast online through Zoom.
Totally free to attend! The aim of the talk is to spread awareness/start a conversation. We just ask that attendees sign up here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/romani-language-mbr-live-with-damian-le-bas-tickets-219806104977?aff=ebdsoporgprofile
