Join us for an exclusive live screening of one of the Royal Institution’s Christmas Lectures, written and presented by mathematician and TV and radio personality Dr Hannah Fry.

In this year’s series, entitled Secrets and lies: the hidden power of maths, Dr Fry will reveal the ways in which maths, rules and patterns influence our daily lives. The lectures will explore how miracles can be understood with probability, how big data dictates the trends we follow, and how algorithms secretly influence our life choices.

We’re giving you a special chance to see the first lecture in the series, streamed live from the Ri. In this lecture, Hannah will seek to find the luckiest member of the audience. Do the biggest events in your life rely on luck, or does probability allow us to understand and predict complex systems?
