Sidney Ball Memorial Lecture

Barnett House instituted a special annual lecture soon after it was founded in 1914, and from 1920 these were named for the first chairman of the Barnett House Committee, Sidney Ball. A full list of past lectures can be found here. The event continues to be a highlight of the DSPI calendar, bringing a distinguished speaker to Oxford every autumn to discuss key themes in social policy and intervention.
