This event has now passed.

For the first time ever, the world renowned Royal Institution Christmas Lectures are coming to While City – and this is your chance to be there.

On Saturday 15 December, from 3.30pm to 6pm, Imperial College will host the first ever live screening of the RI Christmas Lectures.

Scientists from Imperial will be there: playing host, and running accompanying hands on experiments with the audience as the lecture is live screened into White City.

H&F residents can be a part of this very special day, with tickets available via an audience participation ballot.

On the night biological anthropologist, author and broadcaster Professor Alice Roberts, and genetics expert Professor Aoife McLysaght, will take attendees on a fascinating journey to answer the most fundamental of questions: Who Am I?

The RI Christmas Lectures were started in 1825 by Michael Faraday.

With recordings broadcast on TV every December, they have become a seasonal tradition.

The Christmas Lectures make mind-expanding science ideas accessible to people of all ages, but they are particularly aimed at children and young adults.
