Chancellor's Distinguished Lecture Series
Inaugurated in 2015, the Chancellor’s Distinguished Lecture Series is the University of Leicester’s flagship programme of public events.
Free and open to the public, these talks are given by high-profile speakers who either have an existing link to, or relationship with, the University, or who are notable in fields that align with our values and aspirations.
The Rt. Hon. Lord Grocott is the sixth Chancellor of the University of Leicester, having originally studied here as an undergraduate. He twice served as a Labour MP, 1974-1979 and 1987-2001, after which he was named a Life Peer. He took up his position as Chancellor of the University in 2013.
