The Friends of National Museum Wales are delighted to welcome Lord Lisvane, sometime Clerk to the House of Commons, who will give a talk in the Reardon Smith Lecture Theatre of National Museum Cardiff on Friday 4 May at 7.00 pm. Dinner in the Grand Hall of the Museum will follow. Lord Lisvane, formerly Sir Robert Rogers, is an impressive and colourful personality who many Friends will have seen on TV during the recent BBC series ‘Inside the House of Commons’. He served in the House in various capacities for some 42 years. An expert on procedures, precedent, and the Erskine May guide to Parliamentary Practice he was appointed in 2011 as Clerk to the lower house. He was also Chief Executive of the House of Commons Service comprising some 2000 staff, responsible for an annual budget of 250m.

Robert was born in Cardiff, where his forbears built much of the City Centre, the Temple of Peace, and the Law Courts. After Tonbridge School he studied at Lincoln College Oxford and in the USA as a Rhodes Scholar. He was appointed a Life Peer in 2014.

Tickets for this important event are available at a cost of 32 per person, to include admission to the lecture and the ensuing dinner (lounge suits) which will commence at 8.00 pm.
