Ri Young Membership

Exciting workshops and hands-on experiments covering everything from forensics to robotics are just some of the many ways to delve into science at the Ri. Whilst our building is temporarily closed, we will be bringing our programmes and activities to your home, please keep an eye on your emails to see what we have in store for you. We would not be able to this without the invaluable support from our members, thank you.

And once we're back at Albemarle Street our young members will be able to come to explosion-packed shows, fascinating talks, panel discussions and Q&A sessions, all for free or better than half-price.

Ri talks in our historic lecture theatre explore topics such as how the brain works, properties of dark matter, and pyrotechnics. Our speakers are renowned scientists and engineers, including Nobel Prize winners, as well as world class authors, artists and cultural commentators.

Plus Ri Young Members can also be in with a chance to attend our world-famous CHRISTMAS LECTURES.
