It's back and more festive than ever!

Over several years, Professor Peter Myers has developed his theory to explain the existence of Santa and how he can deliver all the presents and eat and drink all the food that is left for him in the 24-hour period of Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Like all good theories this has changed from the original wave theory to a particle theory as new data has been collected and certain assumptions proven to be incorrect.

Over lockdown and the last year, Peter has obtained new data from the new Turkey anti-Turkey accelerator. These results point to an entangled Santa particle. This entangled particle will be used in this year’s lecture to further clarify Santa’s existence and what some people believe to be his very strange behaviour.

We hope you can join us for this much-loved Christmas lecture on Thursday 15 December 2022, the live stream of the event will begin at 6.25pm. The evening will be sure to get you in the Christmas spirit!
