Cheltenham Literature Festival: free tickets to two special events

The Cheltenham Literature Festival are offering University of Gloucestershire students a limited number of free tickets to the following events:

L261: Write Honourable Members
What makes a politician put pen to paper and produce a novel? Academics Nicola Allen and Aidan Byrne delve into this unusual but distinctive genre and reveal the truth about our honourable friends’ secret fantasies. They are joined by bestselling author Michael Dobbs (House of Cards), The Times Literary Editor Robbie Millen and broadcaster and journalist Anne McElvoy.

L169: Freedom is Therapeutic
Italy, 1978: the Basaglia Law sanctions the closure of psychiatric hospitals in an attempt to revolutionise mental health care. Drawing on the anti-psychiatry movement’s legacy, UCL head of psychology Peter Fonagy, historian John Foot (The Man Who Closed the Asylums) and former psychiatrist Linda Gask (The Other Side of Silence) discuss tackling mental health care today. Chaired by David Freeman.
