A new revolution (live screening)

You can be a part of the fun by watching a live feed from the theatre on the big screen.

What are screening tickets?

You can still be a part of the fun by watching a live feed from the theatre on the big screen. Unlike the tickets for the theatre, there are no age restrictions so everyone can join in.

Event description

The Royal Institution’s very own Michael Faraday demonstrated the world’s first motor in 1822 – now we are surrounded by devices that spin, swing and saw. But why stop now? If we continue prototyping, testing and perfecting, can we turn a humble motor into something world changing? Danielle will use her imagination and the new rules of invention to move things in ways that Faraday could only have dreamed of.

Please note

This is for the live screening of the CHRISTMAS LECTURES in the screening room and not the theatre event.
