The mission of the charity, whose patron is Her Majesty the Queen, is to empower people, through open dialogue and debate, to tackle the causes and effects of social division.

Dr Ed Newell, chief executive of Cumberland Lodge, said: “We are greatly looking forward to celebrating our 75th anniversary and, in particular, the opportunity to showcase the work we do as an educational charity to a wider audience.”

Starting on Monday, January 10, at 5pm, guests can view an exhibition about the charity’s history and work.

Refreshments will also be provided.

Following that, at 6pm, Dr Alastair Niven, former principal of Cumberland Lodge, will discuss his recently published memoir, In Glad or Sorry Hours.

The talk will be led by programme manager Gareth Powell.
