What's happening in Lunchtime Lectures?

Lunchtime Lectures are continuing online during Storyhouse’s temporary closure! 

Lunchtime Lectures is a collaboration between Storyhouse and the University of Chester, providing an open platform for debate on a range of topics and fascinating subjects. Usually in Storyhouse’s Garret Theatre, they’re continuing online and take place on the third Tuesday of each month. Our lunchtime lectures are videoed and archived for future viewing, by attending you give permission for us to do so – thank you.

A recorded lecture, Feminism and Religion: A Tricky Relationship with Dr Dawn Llewellyn, is available to watch below.
