Friday 22 October 2010 – the Banquesting Suite, Birmingham Council House, Victoria Square, Birmingham – England: More than 120 citizens, councillors and council staff gathered in the grand Banqueting Suite at the City’s Council House to honour people who give the city a good name.
Geoff Mulgan’s Chamberlain Lecture on 19 October 2010 took place at St Martin’s in the Bull Ring, in Birmingham’s historic heart where the church has stood since the 13th century amidst the clatter of the Bull Ring market. (The market, significantly perhaps, pre-dates the church by about 100 years.) About 70 people joined the meeting and many took part in discussion either as part of the ‘round table’ event that preceded the lecture or the longer period of open debate that followed it.
About 70 Birmingham Residents joined Resident University over the two days it spent at St George’s Community Hub in inner city Newtown. They included young people taking part in the Young Resident University who learned about using social media and film-making in carrying out research with the University.
