The Lost Lectures

The Lost Lectures | A Secret Location

Your intellectual curiosity called.

It misses you.

We had a long chat and, to summarise, it’s been feeling rather unloved of late so is wondering whether you might let it stretch its legs a little? You know, by exposing it to a few ideas that are unrelated to your work, family and friends.

Ideally at some point within the next week.

If you decide to indulge it – and we’ll assume that you’re aware of how slippery a slope that can be – then you should know that The Lost Lectures returns next week, bringing with it several hard-hitting rounds of dinner party conversation starters for you to digest… and then ultimately pass off as your own. Coming to a secret London location on 22nd and 23rd November this is set to be Lost’s biggest event yet, featuring a selection of short talks each night from an eclectic assemblage of exactly the sort of lecturers that you won’t find in universities anywhere…

In addition to chessboxing bouts and a performance by international beatboxing star Reeps One (it’s a boxing theme) there’ll be bars and live music; street food; a fake bookies; roaming cockney popcorn vendors and talks by speakers like tweeting feminist Caroline Criado-Perez, pickpocket extraordinaire James Freedman, mosquito hunter Hadyn Parry and Ruby Wax – a lady who needs no introduction, so doesn’t get one.

Could you ask your intellectual curiosity to stop calling now?

We’ve done all we can.

NOTE: The Lost Lectures is being held in a large, secret London location on both the 22nd and the 23rd November.
