Ms Kennedy joins a cast of illustrious previous speakers: Lady Clare Macdonald (1995), Liz Lochhead (1996), Iain Cuthbertson (1997), Lady Howe (1998), and University Rector, Clarissa Dickson Wright who entertained and captivated her audience last year. Ms Kennedy will talk about all the various aspects of her world and how she manages to balance a very busy life.

Fiona Kennedy was born in Belfast into a theatrical family – her parents are the celebrated Scots singers Anne and Calum Kennedy. Her career as a singer, broadcaster and actor ahs been diverse from presenting over 100 children’s television programme including BBC’s Record Breakers to playing opposite Adam Faith in the West End production of Alfie.

She recorded her debut album Maiden Heaven in 1995, and among several public service appointments she is Chairman of The Princess Royal Trust for Carers for Grampian and Moray and a Director of The Royal Scottish National Orchestra.

Introduced in the University’s Quincentenary year, proceeds from the event go towards the Student Hardship Fund, with a particular emphasis on international students. So far, the Fund has been able to help students from Ireland, Bangladesh, Finland, Portugal, Greece, Ghana and Jordan.
