Professor Alastair Borthwick, University of Hull
The Newland Lectures are a series of prestige public lectures in music that feature a range prominent national and international speakers showcasing material, ideas, compositions or historical investigations in their specialist subject areas. They are designed to be thought provoking but accessible talks.
The University of Hull has been changing the way people think for 90 years.

And we have no plans to stop helping to build a better world.
