Forthcoming lectures for 2021/2022

Over the past few years, we have been very fortunate to host a programme of free science lectures for the local community in the Lillingstone Trust Community Laboratory in the Discovery Centre, thanks to the support of the Lillingstone Trust.  From the Autumn term 2021, we will also be hosting sports science lectures in our new Sports Campus building.

Please watch this space for more details as and when they are confirmed, thank you.
