32 Londoners

© Allan Baxter

32 speakers will give talks on 32 Londoners whilst sipping 32 bespoke cocktails, which represent each of London’s 32 boroughs, on the 32 capsules of the London Eye. The Eye will be set to a special (even) slower rotation speed to give the lecturers, including Ken Livingstone, Dan Cruikshank and Robert Elms, time to talk about their chosen Londoner who vary from Geoffrey Chaucer to David Bowie. Each guest will be able to select a complimentary cocktail, inspired by the boroughs of London. After the rotation there will be a reception and entertainment in the Featherless Flight Lounge. A maximum of two tickets can be brought per person and some of the pods have already sold out. There will be a second release of tickets but if you want to grab one now head to the website for a full list of speakers and subjects including London fanatic Peter Berthoud on A-Z inventor Phyllis Pearsall, biographer Hugo Vickers on photographer Cecil Beaton and BBC News presenter Philippa Thomas on writer Zadie Smith.
