Go behind the scenes of the CHRISTMAS LECTURES

17 December 2015
  • Start: 14:00
  • End: 17:00
  • Location:

The CHRISTMAS LECTURES were started by Michael Faraday in 1825 and continue to be the Royal Institution's flagship annual science communication event, filmed in the same historic lecture theatre and now broadcast on BBC Four. This year, space medicine expert Dr Kevin Fong will present the three part lecture series 'How to survive in space' to coincide with British ESA astronaut Tim Peake's mission on the International Space Station. A small group of eight Stempra members will have the chance to go behind the scenes of this year's Lectures, visit the set, watch part of rehearsals, see where the demos are prepared, meet some of the team, delve into the archives and round off the afternoon with a drink and a chat. As places are very limited, we will be running a draw and attendees will be picked at random. All current Stempra members are able to apply and applications are restricted to one per person. The draw will close on 1 December and the lucky attendees will be emailed the same day. Venue: Royal Institution, 21 Albemarle Street, London, W1S 4BS Date: Thursday 17 December 2015 Time: 2pm until 5pm (exact timings may be subject to change due to rehearsal schedules) Apply now!
