Jimmy Page will speak at the Oxford Union on October 23, the Union confirmed on Wednesday morning.
The Union features a schedule of high-profile speakers, and this term’s lineup includes Page as well as Olympic diver Tom Daley, fashion designer Marc Jacobs, and economist Jeffrey Sachs, among others.
Page isn’t going to be debating anyone, but will instead be giving a talk. The Union uploads video footage of most speakers to its YouTube channel, so look out for footage of the talk around two months after it happens.

Page is scheduled to speak at 8pm on October 23. The event will be closed to the public and only available to members of the Union. Details on how to join the Union are available online here.
