The BCSC Halloween Online Special
Thursday 28th October, 7-9pm, Zoom
After last year’s spine-chilling Black Country Gothic event, we’re gathering around the virtual fireside again for an evening of spooky science fiction (and science fact!), all with a distinctive Black Country twist. Expect mutants, mummies, monsters, machines and tales of the unexpected…
…oh, and a quiz!
We’ll be joined by Dr Nicola Allen, Dr Helen Davies, Dr Martin Khechara and BCLM Researchers, Dr Jenny Gilbert and Nadia Awal.
From Austerity to Prosperity in the Black Country

University of Wolverhampton Christmas Lecture
Thursday 16th December, 7pm-8:30pm
The BCSC are thrilled to be part of the fifth annual University of Wolverhampton’s Christmas-Time Lecture. Using the festive song ‘When Santa Got Stuck Up The Chimney’ as inspiration, this year’s festive lecture will take a satirical look at why Santa chooses to access your property through the chimney and not the door, who is liable if Santa does get stuck, Santa’s health and wellbeing, disaster causation and why Santa hasn’t learnt from past experiences, what happens to Santa if he doesn’t get out, and what transpires if he doesn’t get stuck but is caught kissing mummy underneath the mistletoe.
