Dr Andy Szydlo, of Highgate School, London, will dazzle his audience with science in a series of vivid demonstrations.

His book, Water that does not wet hands: The Alchemy of Michael Sendivogius, tells the story of an unfairly forgotten Polish alchemist.
Warning – There will be flashes and bangs!
The lecture will be suitable for all ages (9-90).
