The Mather-Jackson Library, Fourth Annual Lecture, at the Sessions House, Maryport Street, Usk NP15 1AD

 Mick Antoniw AM, Pontypridd

 Counsel General to the Welsh Government

 ‘Brexit. What does it mean for devolution?’

The lecture will be held in the Victorian courtroom, designed by the architect Thomas Wyatt and opened in 1870. The Mather-Jackson Library adjoins the courtroom. Drinks will be served, and there will be an opportunity to meet our speaker and Library trustees, and to view the library.

Attendance at the lecture is free, but we do ask for a donation on the day. The Library enjoys the support of Usk Town Council, but receives no outside funding – we rely entirely on donations.
