Friday Salon @ The Black Box

In association with the Black Box, we welcome you to the Friday Salons, a blend of big science and intimate conversations designed to ignite your curiosity and imagination.
The Universe is shrouded in mystery yet through the Centuries, mankind has slowly unravelled many of its dark secrets. Mark Thompson: Stargazer reveals the hidden nature of the Universe, brought to life with mind-blowing demonstrations.
Best known for co-presenting the BBC’s popular, Stargazing LIVE, Mark Thompson is sought after for taking complex scientific concepts and bringing them to life in an engaging and entertaining way. He is a frequent broadcaster, appearing on The One Show, The Alan Titchmarsh Show, and many news networks. His book 'A Down to Earth Guide to the Cosmos' was a hit and, having lectured at the Royal Institution and National Astronomy Meeting, Mark is no stranger to entertaining and informing big audiences of both professional astronomers and the general public.
Come along if you want to learn more about the mysteries of the Universe from the ‘People’s Astronomer’.
