Tom Robinson is a British songwriter and broadcaster. The Tom Robinson Band (TRB), early supporters of Rock Against Racism, enjoyed chart success in the 1970s. Unusually for the time, Tom was openly gay and a vocal supporter of LGBT rights.

He had further hits as a solo artist and co-wrote songs with Elton John, Peter Gabriel, Dan Hartman and Manu Katché.
Since 1987 Tom has hosted programmes on all eight of the BBC‘s national radio stations and won two Gold Sony Academy Radio Awards, including for the programme You've Got To Hide Your Love Away, a history of Queer music.  He has presented shows on BBC Radio 6 Music since its launch in 2002 and is now best known as a DJ and champion of new music artists.

Join Tom at this event to hear him speak about his life and activism.  All welcome, including members of the public, students and staff.
