The subject of this year’s event will be ‘adopted Londoners’ – with expert speakers celebrating iconic figures, past and present, who were born outside of the city, but came to be associated with it. This year’s list includes Margaret Thatcher, Joe Strummer and Vivienne Westwood with expert speakers including Dan Cruickshank, Don Letts and Jennie Bond.

With its long history of cultural diversity, London has long been a beacon, attracting the great and the good to its streets. This year’s subjects will be some of those who contributed to London’s rich tapestry of stories and helped shaped the destiny of the UK’s capital city.

Nikki Ratcliffe, London Eye spokesperson said: “London is the greatest city on earth and we wanted to celebrate some of the intriguing characters who have made London their home and helped make London what it is today. We are delighted to be welcoming back 32 Londoners to the London Eye and are thrilled by the exciting mix of captivating speakers and fascinating subjects that this year’s event offers.”

During each talk, guests will be served a complimentary beverage courtesy of Aspall Cyder while there will also be an opportunity to share a further drink with fellow participants and speakers at the fully stocked cash bar prior to, and after the talks at the London Eye Riverside Rooms.
