In Adolescence: How to Survive It Tony and co-author Herb Etkin offer a guide for parents, teachers and young adults on coping with those fraught years. Lessons from two top educators. Interviewed by Gerry Foley.

Johnny Ball£7

It is hard to think of the live-wire Johnny as an 81-year-old, so sharp is his mind and so keen is he on his favourite subject, maths. He has delighted us before and will do so again talking about Wonders Beyond Numbers: A Brief History of All Things Mathematical. Don’t underestimate this master communicator who has no formal university experience in mathematics….it’s just his personal passion and one which he has inspired in millions of others. This event is sponsored by The Head Partnership Solicitors.

Suitable for ages 10-100

This event is now sold out. Please contact the box office if you’d like to be added to the waiting list. If any tickets become available, an email will be sent to everyone on the waiting list regardless of your place.
