Dauntsey’s has announced an impressive line-up of speakers for the 2022-2023 programme of its renowned Lecture series. The Mercers’ Lectures are named in recognition of the links between Dauntsey’s and the Mercers’ Company, which go back to Mercer founder Alderman William Dauntsey, Master of the Worshipful Company of Mercers, who founded the School in West Lavington in 1542.

The speakers are for the forthcoming series:

Mark Lascelles, Head Master, Dauntsey’s, said:

“The Mercers’ Lectures are central to encouraging our pupils to engage with the outside world and think beyond the confines of their academic curriculum.

“This year we look forward to welcoming a diverse range of distinguished speakers covering business, history, future technologies and the world of theatre. This year’s lecture series will be a highlight for the school and, I hope, for our local community.”

All lectures commence at 7.30pm and will be held in the Memorial Hall; please check on the School website on the day of the event.
