This year’s event is inspired by the science of the nineteenth century, scientific discoveries made in the Victorian era, and the romance associated with this holiday for the Victorians.
Guests will be able to watch a science-themed dance performance, and hear talks on the science in Victorian fairy tales, astronomy in the 19th century, and Michael Faraday’s Christmas candle lecture.
