Hear about the fascinating career of barrister Jeremy Hutchinson QC who played a pivotal role in post-war British cultural life through his involvement in landmark trials such as the 1960 Lady Chatterley obscenity trial.

He also acted as defence counsel for the art thief Kempton Bunton, Christine Keeler, the Great Train robber Charles Wilson, Soviet spy George Blake and drug dealer Howard Marks, amongst many others. Hutchinson became a member of the House of Lords, was Vice-Chairman of the Arts Council of Great Britain, a Professor of Law at the RA and Chairman of the Tate Gallery. His Vuillard oil painting joined our collection earlier this year.

Thomas Grant QC, author of ‘Jeremy Hutchinson’s Case Histories’ and ‘Court Number One: The Old Bailey Trials which Defined Modern Britain’, will give a lively insight into Hutchinson’s extraordinary career and his impact on events that changed British society forever.
