Henry V

A Morning Conference at the Tobacco Factory

Saturday 22nd September 2018, 10.00 am – 1.00 pm

Registration from 9.30 am


“Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more, or close the wall up with our English dead! In peace there's nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness and humility; but when the blast of war blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger: stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood.” (Act III, Scene I) 

 This is the Bridge Foundation’s 13th joint venture with Shakespeare at the Tobacco Factory (stf).

Our speakers on 22nd September will be:


Jem Thomas

Jem Thomas is a psychotherapist, a member of the Severnside Institute for Psychotherapy and registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council. He now works in private practice but has previously worked in both the public and voluntary sectors. In an earlier career, Jem was an academic and was one of the original founders of the Association for Psychosocial Studies. As well as his professional practice, Jem has a particular interest in the strengths and weaknesses of psychoanalysis as a form of research and its links to other forms of inquiry. He also has a strong interest in the cultural and political implications of psychoanalytic thought. He has published in these and other areas.
