Event description

Australian radio and TV presenter and author Dr Karl Kruszelnicki is back at the Ri for a special night of wintery wonder, and festive formulae. In his own unique style, Dr Karl will take you a whistle-stop tour of all corners of the world of science. Whatever the topic is, you're sure to learn something new along the way!

We will also flip things around for one night, with the audience going head-to-head with Dr Karl in our now annual interactive quiz at the end. Bring a fully charged smartphone or tablet (and brain), and join us for an evening of festive fun!

Parental warning: This event may include discussion of the whereabouts and existence (or otherwise) of Father Christmas.

This event is particularly suitable for ages 13+
