The Thomas Hardye School

Kate Adie to give Lecture at Thomas Hardye

Kate Adie

On Monday 21st November at 7.00 p.m. The Thomas Hardye Theatre is excited to welcome a woman who paved the way for female journalists. Best known for being a former correspondent for the BBC, Kate Adie will be recalling stories from her career in which she reported from war zones across the world. She will discuss the high points of her career, including being named Reporter of the Year and being awarded an OBE and explain about her more recent projects  on From Our Own Correspondent.

The lecture is highly recommended for anyone with a passion for journalism and an interest in Kate's exciting career but is especially useful for aspiring journalists, politics/English/media/drama students and anyone looking to work abroad in difficult environments.

Tickets are free of charge, but we are gratefully receiving donations, which will be split between FOOTPRINTS (a charity that works with ex-prisoners in Dorset and is close to Kate Adie’s heart) and The Thomas Hardye Theatre Aspire Programme. This programme aims to expose young people of Dorset to inspirational figures from their dream jobs. It allows them to become more informed about how to progress in that industry and gives them a role model that they can aspire to. Donations will be used to pay for future speakers/ workshop leaders.

IN ORDER TO PLAN ACCORDINGLY FOR AUDIENCE NUMBERS, YOU MUST BOOK TICKETS BEFORE THE DAY OF THE EVENT. You can either order online (https://portal.thomas-hardye.net/cz/theatre), or visit The Thomas Hardye reception.

Thank you and hope to see you there!
