****FULLY BOOKED**** The Hon Dorothy Wedgwood OBE Annual Christmas Lecture for Young people will be held on Wednesday 5th December 2018.

This lecture is aimed at schools,  for students in school years 10-13, and entrance is by ticket only.

This year’s lecture will be given by Professor Brian Cox OBE FRS, Royal Society Professor for Public Engagement in Science.

The Universe is unimaginably large; even the part we can see with our telescopes contains over a trillion galaxies the size of our Milky Way, itself home to hundreds of billions of stars.  And yet, over the last 100 years, we have developed an understanding of how everything we see, including our own planet, emerged from a sub-atomic sized patch of space 13.8 billion years ago.  Professor Cox will discuss what we know and what we don’t yet know about the origin and evolution of the Universe.
