Peter Florence and You

The 30th anniversary Quiz Night Supper

Venue: Relish Festival Restaurant
Scrummy food, great company and some not-too-fiendish quizzing. Points mean prizes! If you know your Tombouctoo from your Tim Brooke Taylor you’ll be in the game. And it’s really not all THAT competitive… #hahahaha

Teams of four. Come as a quartet or come and scratch a team with new friends. Just come. It’ll be a blast.

• price includes 2-course supper

Carlo Rovelli

The 2017 John Maddox Lecture - Reality is Not What it Seems: The Journey to Quantum Gravity

Venue: Baillie Gifford Stage

Do space and time truly exist? What is reality made of? Can we understand its deep texture? Taking us on a wondrous journey, Rovelli invites us to imagine a whole new world where black holes are waiting to explode, space time is made up of grains and infinity does not exist: a vast universe still largely undiscovered.

‘The man who makes physics sexy. The new Hawking. His writing is luminous.’ – The Times.  Chaired by Marcus du Sautoy.
