SOLD OUT – REREADING THE 2011 RIOTS: COULD IT HAPPEN AGAIN? GUARDIAN LIVE

31 January

An open and honest discussion on how we can work together to prevent riots from repeating

Nearly a decade after the 2011 riots, how have the communities affected changed? What caused the original riots to start and spread, and could it happen again?

Join shadow home secretary Diane Abbott MP; friend of Mark Duggan and freelance youth mentor Marcus Knox-Hooke; social psychology professors Steve Reicher and John Drury, and chair Paul Lewis, associate editor at The Guardian, to discuss the lessons we can learn from the events of 2011 to create a better future for our cities.

Running time: 90 minutes, no interval.

Wheelchair users and visitors who require an assistant may bring a companion free of charge. To book a free companion ticket please email guardianlive.events@theguardian.com
