Young people in the audience at the 2019 Christmas lectures

The 2022 CHRISTMAS LECTURES from the Royal Institution will be filmed in front of a live audience in our Theatre on Tuesday 13 December, Thursday 15 December and Saturday 17 December. Being part of the live audience is a special experience.

The audience is made up of young people aged 11-17, with limited space for some parents, guardians and carers in the gallery.

How do I get a ticket?

Due to their popularity, tickets to the filming are made available through a ballot open exclusively to Ri Young Members, Members and Patrons, as a thank you for their support throughout the year. The Ri also allocates free tickets to schools in disadvantaged communities that it has been supporting throughout the year.

The ballot is now open and you can enter here – as long as you are a member!

The 2022 ballot closes on Thursday 20 October.

Join our community of Ri Members and Patrons and enter the ballot for this once in a lifetime science experience!
