This week we welcomed Dr Miles Leeson Director of the Iris Murdoch Research Centre. Dr Leeson is currenlty researching a new book on the celebrated Old Badmintonian and was keen to see some evidence of her time at Badminton School. We are lucky to still have access to photos and original essays written by her whilst at the School.

It is the centenary of her birth in 2019, and we spent some time discussing exciting plans for collaborative events for next year. It looks set to be a good year for celebrating the wonderful life and works of Dame Iris Murdoch.
