Christmas Lectures set with flames above it and an audience with hands  over their ears
Paul Wilkinson

Started by Michael Faraday in 1825 and still going strong today, the CHRISTMAS LECTURES are the world's leading science series for children.

Each year the CHRISTMAS LECTURES reach millions of people of all ages around the world via three live Lectures, television broadcast and digital platforms.

As an independent charity, we are reliant on income we can raise ourselves. Your support will help us bring our CHRISTMAS LECTURES to more children from across the UK and beyond, inspiring them to think more deeply about science and its place in our lives.

Trusts and Foundations

Trusts and foundations have a long history of supporting the Ri’s CHRISTMAS LECTURES and its programme of exciting digital and educational activities.  

Support from trusts and foundations enables millions of young people a year, from a range of backgrounds and from across the UK, to benefit from greater engagement with science, including through the CHRISTMAS LECTURES experience.
