An Evening with Johnny Ball

This is an event from the 2017 edition

Tickets: £6, £4 concessions

Johnny Ball, by some margin Britain’s most famous mathematician, talks about Wonders Beyond Numbers, his first book in over a decade.

A celebration of his love for the subject, it ranges from ancient Egypt to the present day, from Russian sums in an English pub, circa 1946 to the ‘many tentacles’ of modern mathematics underpinning astronomy, computing, network theory, topology and much more.

Join Johnny for a fun and fact-filled evening which will kindle – or re-kindle- your enthusiasm for this astonishing subject.
