Be inspired

There's an exciting event planned for tomorrow night - Inspiration for Life are putting on 24 hours of back to back lectures from some of the University's top researchers and teachers. It's all in aid of the charity formed by Tim Richardson, a physics lecturer who sadly died earlier this year from cancer. Two years ago he did 24 hours of lectures to raise funds for Children in Need, so this event has been inspired by him.

It features half hour lectures from Sir Keith Burnett our VC, Tony Ryan, Richard Jones, Alistair Warren, Brendan Stone, Elena Rodrigez-Falcon, and Professor Vanessa, and many others. Starting at 5pm Thursday and finishing at 5pm Friday, it will be great! Come down and see the overnight shift of volunteers (including me) in their pyjamas, our teaching technologies team led by the inimitable Mr Knowles perform 43 2 minute changeovers between speakers, and musicians busking in the foyer ( including a CiCS harpist!).

The full programme is here, just turn up, pay a minimum of £1 per lecture or £5 for the lot. Stay up all night and support the physicists who are doing the midnight to 5am slot.

You can read how inspired our VC is by the event here.
