York Union Event

The York Union warmly invites you to attend our fourth external speaker event of the new academic year as we welcome Sir Lawrence Freedman for an address titled: 'The transformation of war from 1914 to 2018.'

Sir Lawrence Freedman is Emeritus Professor of War Studies at King's College London and has been described as the "dean of British strategic studies". He was a member of the Iraq Inquiry and was the Official Historian of the Falklands Campaign and author of 'The Official History of the Falklands Campaign' was published in two volumes. Sir Lawrence is an alumnus of the University of York.

The address will include a Q&A during which time audience members can pose questions to Sir Lawrence. Our events are as intelligent as our audience so please join us for what should be a lively and engaging evening!

Please bring your free ticket with you to the event. You cannot be guaranteed entry without your ticket but those without tickets may be allowed entry only if spaces are available.

To cover the expenses of hosting this event we suggest a small donation of £2 from students and £4 from members of the public at the door for those who are able. The York Union is a strictly not-for-profit organisation run by a small group of volunteers.
