Event description

2015 is upon us so finally, after a two-year break, the Large Hadron Collider is about to restart with almost double the collision energy. To celebrate, join us as we follow six brilliant scientists during the launch of the Large Hadron Collider in this special screening of ‘Particle Fever’.

After the film screening, Dr Harry Cliff, particle physicist at the University of Cambridge and curator of the Science Museum's Collider exhibition, will give a short talk about how things have developed since the filming of Particle Fever and what we can expect from the restart of the LHC.

Watch the trailer for Particle Fever.

This event is now SOLD OUT but tickets for seats with restricted view will be available to buy on the door for £8
