BBC Radio 3 Free Thinking Festival

Joshua Nall (New Generation Thinker): Mars and the Victorians

The Barbour Room

Due to high demand we will only honour 4 tickets per customer. All tickets will be held at Ticket Office for collection.

With the recent success of NASA’s Curiosity lander, Mars is firmly back on the agenda. But where did our fascination with the red planet start?

Cambridge University historian Joshua Nall returns to Mars, as it was seen a century ago, when science and literature buzzed with claims about inhabitants on the neighbouring planet.

The New Generation Thinkers are the winners of a talent scheme run by BBC Radio 3 and the Arts and Humanities Research Council to find the brightest academic minds in the arts and humanities with the potential to turn their ideas into broadcasts.

This event will be recorded for broadcast on BBC Radio 3.

If advance tickets for your chosen event are currently sold out, don’t forget that there will be a standby queue on the day.
