  • The Royal Institution 21 Albemarle Street London, England, W1S United Kingdom (map)

Presented by The Royal Institution

As The Royal Institution resounds, Frankenstein is still as relevant today as it was 200 years ago, and Shelley's creature lives on as an embodiment of society's anxieties about where science is taking us.

Through this event, join Phil Ball and a panel of science historians and biographers as they discuss the context in which the book was written and how the tale has become a popular myth with a life of its own, independent of Shelley's original text.

What to expect?

The doors will open at approximately 6.30pm, with a prompt start at 7.00pm. There will be time for questions after the talk. Latecomers may be admitted to the gallery.

Date: Tuesday 23rd January, 7pm - 8.30pm

Location: The Royal Institution of Great Britain, 21 Albemarle Street, London, W1S 4BS

Investment: £7 - £16
