The former President of Ireland, Mary Robinson, will be talking about her extraordinary life at Queen Elizabeth Hall, as she celebrates the publication of her memoirs -- "Everybody Matters".
Mary Robinson first rose to prominence as a member of the Irish Senate in 1969. She went on to become the first female President of Ireland and served as the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights between 1997-2002.
Queen Elizabeth Hall is part of the Southbank Centre complex on the south bank of the Thames. Don’t be put off by the rather brutal concrete exterior, as its eclectic mix of performances feature classical, avant-garde music, world music and dance shows. It seats around 900 people.
Visit City Hall, and watch the Mayor of London – 2nd January to 27th December 2013 If you’ve already been to the House of Commons and seen the MPs debating, then why not try their little cousins at City Hall?

Solve a crime, at the Natural History Museum – 30th August 2013 “Crime Scene Live” is an award-winning event where you will step into the shoes of a CSI and, with the help of real forensic scientists and detectives, collect the evidence from a grisly Museum murder. Then you’ll witness the trial where real-life barristers will cross-examine the experts and call everything into question.
