Memorial lecture 2016
The trustees of the Tavistock Square Memorial Trust have announced details of this year’s memorial lecture.
The 7/7 Memorial Lecture was conceived to provide a lasting positive remembrance to those who lost their lives (in the London 2005 bombings) across all four sites and to acknowledge the courage of the survivors, the witnesses, and the emergency services who did what they had to do on that day. In 2015 the Lecture was the first of two official commemorations to mark the 10th anniversary of the London Bombings.
The lecture is due to take place on the evening of Monday 4th July in the Great Hall of the British Medical Association in Tavistock Square.
This year’s lecture will be delivered by June Kelly, BBC Home Affairs Correspondent, who over the past decade has worked on many chapters of the 7/7 story. She reported from the scenes of the bombings, was in court for the inquests on the 52 who died and saw the bombers’ associates face a criminal trial. She also covered the unveiling of the Hyde Park memorial and the 10th-anniversary commemorations.
