Thu 01 March 2018 - Wed 28 March 2018



How can we explain the rise of nationalist parties? Why would we want all our electrical goods to be connected to each other? How can the Big Bang help us understand ourselves? And why was famous diarist Samuel Pepys tasked with carrying around the King's guitar?

Join Gresham College this month to  explore these questions and much more.

Events are 'first come, first served' with no booking required. Doors open 30 minutes before the advertised start time.

All lectures will be broadcast live on YouTube and recorded for the Gresham College website and YouTube channel
