We can't run events in our theatre right now, so we've lined up a world-class array of speakers to enjoy from home every Tuesday night.
Our building and famous theatre remain closed, but we are striving to continue our science communication work here at the Ri. The Royal Institution exists to inspire everyone to think more deeply about science and its place in our lives. Never has our mission felt more relevant than in today’s world.
We are a small independent charity and receive no core government funding. Our income from ticket sales and venue hire has been significantly reduced and will continue to fall. Most of our staff are on furlough because we urgently need to minimise the debt we are now building. Donations, alongside our membership subscriptions are vital to our development and survival.
Whilst we remain unable to welcome you into our theatre, we are pleased to be able to announce a series of livestreamed talks curated by the Ri team.
These online events are free for everyone to access. However, donations are an extremely important source of support for us and we would be most grateful if you were able to contribute.
Please donate via our JustGiving page. Every donation makes a difference, and we are extremely grateful to all our supporters.
