Susie Dent on Tribes – The School of Life Sunday Sermon

Date: Sunday 30 October 2016, 11.20 – 13.30

VenueCecil Sharp House

Knowledge Quarter’s partner, The School of Life, presents Susie Dent on Tribes. As the resident word-expert on Countdown’s Dictionary Corner, Susie Dent knows her way around the English language. In this Sunday Sermon, she’ll show you how to decode modern Britain’s secret languages and discover what really makes us tick.

We are surrounded by hundreds of tribes, each speaking their own distinct (s)language of colourful words, jokes and phrases, honed through years of conversations on the battlefield, in A&E, backstage and at ten-thousand feet in the air.

Since 2008 The School of Life has presented strictly secular Sunday Sermons, asking maverick cultural figures to give us their take on the virtues to cling to or the vices to be wary of in our complex world. Expect persuasive polemics, pop-song hymns and artist-made buns and biscuits.

At this sermon, we’ll be singing The Zephyr Song – Red Hot Chilli Peppers and The She Goes – The La’s.
