This event has been and gone.

Incomparable in both style and substance – MLF are proud to present an evening with one of Britain's most iconic and pioneering women, Dame Vivienne Westwood. Her forthcoming book, Get A Life: The Diaries of Vivienne Westwood, brings together the best of her much-loved online diaries, granting us an insight to the intellectual curiosity and playfulness that underpins her fashion design, her ideas and her way of life.

A passionate activist committed to human rights and the environment, she has travelled up the Amazon to draw attention to tribal communities’ struggles to maintain the rainforest, driven a tank to David Cameron’s house to protest about fracking and founded Climate Revolution. Join us as Vivienne discusses her diverse career, her work as a campaigner and her urgent concerns about climate change and the planet with ethical writer and broadcaster Lucy Siegle.
