The Annual Dinner

This year’s after dinner speaker is Professor Sir John Curtice, Professor of Politics at the University of Strathclyde whose timely lecture will be given on the eve of Brexit.

Professor Sir John Curtice is one of the UK's leading authorities on elections and social attitudes, Professor John Curtice of the University of Strathclyde, has been knighted in the 2018 New Year Honours List. Sir John has received his knighthood for services to social sciences and politics, in a career in which he has widely researched and commented upon elections and voting. He successfully combines the scholarly analysis of a distinguished academic with the communication skills of a public educator, gaining an international reputation for providing straightforward explanations of the decisions of voters, the behaviour of parties, and the outcome of elections. He received particular acclaim for leading exit polls that accurately forecast the outcome of the last four General Elections. Notably, the polls for the 2015 and 2017 elections proved to be correct despite being at odds with widespread expectations.

The Annual Dinner is always a very enjoyable event, we hope you can join us.

One ticket per person is included in the cost of the Delegate Fee. Additonal Tickets for the Annual Dinner are available to purchase when registering for the Meeting
