An evening of calculated conviviality with real life math-magicians!

Join us for the first nation-wide live screening of the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures, this year led by Dr Hannah Fry (Associate Professor in the Mathematics of Cities, University College London).

In Secrets and Lies: The Hidden Power of Maths, Hannah will unmask the numbers, rules and patterns that secretly influence our lives.

Alongside the on-screen experiments, we’ll have a geometrical jamboree of demonstrations, performances and talks from our amazing researchers at University of Birmingham who’ll explore how maths underpins and connects everything from medical diagnoses, dentistry, and clinical trials to ethics, robotics and even how we’re born.

Presented by UoB Public Engagement in partnership with the Royal Institution and Thinktank Science Museum
