Previous speakers have included artist Jake Chapman;  art critic, historian and broadcaster Andrew Graham Dixon; comic artist and writer Mike Mignola; Director, Tate Modern Frances Morris, curator Ileen Gallagher, illustrator Victoria Ying, fashion designer Jeff Banks and lead-singer of Skunk Anansie, Skin.
