Darwin College plans to hold the 2022 Darwin College lecture series in person whenever possible. Lectures will take place at Lady Mitchell Hall and Little Hall, Sidgwick Avenue.
Lectures will also be live-streamed on this page https://www.darwin.cam.ac.uk/lectures
Should the Government or the University of Cambridge place restrictions on such events taking place, the lectures will only be live-streamed. Our webpage will be regularly updated so PLEASE do check this page before setting out to attend the lectures.
Since 1986 in the second term of every academic year Darwin College has organised a series of eight public lectures. Each series has been built around a single theme, approached in a multi-disciplinary way, and with each lecture prepared for a general audience by a leading authority on his or her subject.
The Darwin College Lectures are very popular, each attended by around 600 people, so you must arrive early to ensure a place. Stewards at the door follow a strict admissions policy to ensure fairness. An adjacent overflow theatre (with live TV coverage) is provided for those who cannot be seated in the main hall.
