Tickets for schools to the CHRISTMAS LECTURES filming are not made available via the ballot, but rather are being offered for free to schools that have significant numbers of students from backgrounds that are currently underrepresented in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). Those schools are being selected in a partnership between the Ri and the Mayor's London Scientist Programme.

The ballot closes at 11.59pm on Wednesday 27 October.
