Universal: A Guide to the Cosmos

Universal: A Guide to the Cosmos

On Wednesday 22 March at 7pm, we will welcome Professor Jeff Forshaw to St Peter’s School, to deliver a lecture entitled ‘Universal: A Guide to the Cosmos’.

Universal: A Guide to the Cosmos

Professor Forshaw will talk about his new book, in which he and Brian Cox attempt to explain how it is that humans have managed to reach a point where they can claim to be able to compute how the universe was behaving when it was far smaller than the size of an atomic nucleus; a time before the Big Bang even.

Tickets for the lecture are free and are available on our Eventbrite page. If you have any enquiries or accessibility requirements please telephone us on 01904 527315 or email

Please either print off your ticket or display it to us on your smartphone or tablet on the evening.
