It is our great pleasure to invite you to the 2017 Stone Lecture on Tuesday 21st February, during which broadcaster and writer Sally Magnusson will talk about the challenge of dementia.

She will explore how the experience of looking after her mother Mamie (chronicled in her bestselling memoir Where Memories Go) encouraged her to find ways of persuading society to look differently at dementia, and how her mother’s response to music led to the foundation of the charity Playlist for Life.
