Lillingstone Lectures

Forthcoming lectures for 2023/24

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 2022, we also started to host sport science lectures in the Mind and Body zone of our new ek robotics Sports Campus.

Details of future lectures will be added to the calendar list below once confirmed.

These lectures are open to all members of the local community (not only the Royal Latin School community). To book a seat at any of these lectures, or to be added to the mailing list to receive advance notifications of upcoming lectures, please email Lucy Beckett –
