As our Fireside Chats mini-series in 2020 were so popular we are running a third series this term.
Running alongside our 2020-21 programme of events for the academic year, we are holding live streamed Fireside Chats with Imperial experts on the occasional Friday afternoon @ 4pm. Each event will feature a mini-lecture and Q & A session with the audience.
To view the recordings from previous episodes in 2020 and see which leading figures starred in our first two seasons in 2020, click through to Fireside chats - our mini series in 2020
Exclusively for Members of Friends and their guests, the spring Fireside Chats are part of the annual Membership benefits. If you are a Member you can book FREE (fireside) places for each chat.

See the next episodes of Fireside Chats below. And make sure you are registered with us to hear about further Season 3 chats as they are launched!
We are heavily reliant on ticket revenue alongside Membership subscriptions to fund the running of Friends therefore we have been severely impacted by the loss of event income due to the pandemic.
On the horizon is the next programme to create. We would really welcome donations to enable us to organise and run our programme of events for the academic year 2021-22.
We hope you can help!

Our esteemed expert Professor Sir Tejinder Singh Virdee FRS covered 'What lies beyond the Higgs boson?' in this exclusive event for Members and their guests. Sir Tejinder Virdee is one of the founding fathers of the CMS experiment at the CERN Large Hadron Collider which in 2012 shared the credit for discovering the elusive Higgs boson.
The Black Swan theory describes an unpredictable event characterised by extreme rarity, severe impact, and the widespread insistence it was obvious in hindsight. Members heard from the expert who has advised the UK Government on managing Black Swan risks.
