Our Cumberland Conversations series has been running since 2003, bringing leading figures from public life to Cumberland Lodge to discuss their life and work and answer questions from our public audience. Here you will find recordings of some of our more recent Conversations, and guest blog posts written by Cumberland Lodge Scholars and audience members.

You can find out more about this series, and some of our past guest speakers here. Our Conversations generally take place quarterly, in The Mews conference centre at Cumberland Lodge, and everyone is welcome. Recently, we have started live-streaming our Conversations where possible, to allow more people to join us. During the COVID-19 pandemic, our Conversations have gone entirely online, with guests joining us remotely and our audience joining us on Zoom.

Details of upcoming Conversations are shared in the 'What's On' section of our website. Recordings of our most recent Cumberland Conversations can be found below.
