What is City Talks:

Our City Talk series invites a number of diverse speakers into the University to discuss a variety of current topics. The talks aim to celebrate, educate and entertain the audience with inspiring speakers from all walks of life.  

The talks are free to attend and open to the general public and provide the audience with an opportunity to spark debate and ask their own questions. 

Forthcoming events

In Conversation with Jess Phillips
Thursday 7 November 6.30pm - 8.00pm

Author and activist Jess Phillips will be joining Birmingham City University for an exclusive talk to discuss her life and career to date.

Jess has earned a reputation for being a straight-talking modern feminist, fearlessly tackling hard-hitting issues in Parliament. She will be discussing her life in Birmingham, path into politics and how she deals with online trolls.

Jess will be interviewed by Birmingham City University’s Diane Kemp, Professor of Broadcast Journalism at Birmingham City University.
