David Miliband’s 2014 South Shields Lecture
Schools Advisory Service were pleased to be the official sponsors of the successful 12th South Shields Annual Lecture, hosted at Harton Technology College for the 6th time. This year, we were delighted to welcome the award-winning dramatist and screenwriter, Alan Bennett, as the guest speaker for the event chaired by David Miliband.
In the official Lecture, Bennett produced a sensational reading of extracts from his autobiographical novel ‘Untold Stories’, which seemed to thoroughly inspire the excited guests. The witty and often hilarious tales of Bennett’s life made for a fantastic evening, one that we are sure will be hard to beat at next year’s Lecture.
