On the evening of 20 August, there will be a public "Evening of Particle Physics" from 18:30 in the Cruciform Lecture Theatre 1 at UCL. (Note, moved from LT2 due to high demand for tickets!)
Here's the listing on the UCL events page
The evening will be chaired by Jon Butterworth, and will include:
- An introduction to CERN and the Large Hadron Collider
