Join our panel including former rock critic and Mercury Prize judge, Simon Frith FBA and one of the world's leading voices on modern Russian history, Robert Service FBA, as they explore art, music and history to ask when is a revolution a revolution?

Professor Robert Service FBA Fellow, St Antony's College, Oxford; Professor of Russian History, University of Oxford

Free, booking required

As our public events are free, not everyone who registers for tickets attends. To make sure we have a full house we allocate more tickets than there are seats. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people. Admission is on a first come, first served basis, so please arrive in good time for the start of the event.
