We’re kicking off 2018 with a visit from Gavin Weightman, here to discuss “Eureka: How Invention Happens”

This witty and inspiring book chronicles the long history of discovery and ingenuity which gave rise to a “eureka moment” when a dream of invention became a reality for the first time. Tracing the long pre-history of five twentieth-century inventions which have transformed our lives, Gavin Weightman reveals a fantastic cast of scientists and inspired amateurs whose ingenuity has given us the airplane, television, bar code, personal computer, and mobile phone.

Looking forward to seeing many familiar faces after the Christmas break, this is sure to be a lovely evening.

£2.50 entry, includes a glass of wine.
