Next week: Just a Drop's annual lecture 'Secret Lives Exposed: If Walls Could Talk' at the Royal Geographical Society, Thursday March 1st, 7:30pm

International water charity Just a Drop's third annual lecture at the Royal Geographical Society will take place next week on 1 March 2018, 7:30pm. All proceeds from the evening will support Just a Drop's safe water and sanitation projects.

Acclaimed novelist Sarah Dunant and award-winning historians Bettany Hughes and Suzannah Lipscomb will join the water charity for ‘Secret Lives Exposed: If Walls Could Talk’. The evening will provide a unique opportunity to discover history’s hidden stories, from the private life of Henry VIII to the secrets of Renaissance courtesans, cloistered nuns, and a Pope's daughter. The talk will be followed by an audience Q&A led by Stephen Sackur, Just a Drop Patron and presenter of BBC's HARDTalk. Sarah, Bettany and Suzannah will all sign copies of their latest books after the talk. 

This year’s Just a Drop lecture follows on from the success of 2017’s ‘Danger, Deadlines & Frontlines: a Glimpse into the Lives of Foreign Correspondents’, which featured award-winning journalists Jeremy Bowen, BBC and Christina Lamb OBE, The Sunday Times; and 2016’s lecture, ‘Life Behind the Lens’ with wildlife producers Patrick Morris, BBC, and Huw Cordey, Silverback Films.
