Has Trump made any difference

By Professor Kathleen Burk, University College London


Focusing on relations between the US and China from the 1840s to the present day, this talk will chart the rise of both countries which, by the 1970s, were the only truly imperial states in existence. Now, the lecturer will argue, there is only one. The final part of the talk will assess the impact of the Trump presidency on the status of the US in relation to China.

EVERYTHING YOU WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT CHEMISTRY

…. But were too scared to ask!


By Professor David Read


This interactive talk aims to demystify many aspects of the world of science, helping us to appreciate the value of chemistry in our everyday lives, and hopefully assist us in understanding some of the chemical principles that govern the world around us. Using demonstrations, animations and simulations, Professor David Read will bring the subject to life and break down some of the key barriers that prevent us from getting to grips with this most elegant of disciplines.

Power players in the Rulership and Succession in the Ottoman Sultanate

By Gemma Masson, University of Birmingham


Acquiring and keeping the throne in the Ottoman Empire was no easy task. Most sultans took the view that the best method of securing power was to kill all other claimants. Judicial royal fratricide became an accepted method of securing the Ottoman throne until the practice was abolished in the 17th century. This talk will delve into the details of this devilish device.

Performed by Gary Mullen & The Works


In 2000, Gary Mullen won ITV’s “Stars In Their Eyes” Live Grand Final, with the largest number of votes ever received in the show's history. Gary began touring on his own and in 2002 formed a band ‘The Works’, to pay tribute to rock legends Queen.  Since May 2002, ‘Gary Mullen and the Works’ have performed throughout the UK, USA, Europe, South Africa and New Zealand to sell-out audiences.  The outfit have also twice rocked the prestigious BBC Proms in the Park, in front of a very enthusiastic crowd of 40,000.


One Night of Queen is a spectacular live concert, recreating the look, sound, pomp and showmanship of arguably the greatest rock band of all time. This show will ROCK you!


"...more than a likeness"

Brian May, Queen


"Mullen brought legendary Queen front man Freddie Mercury back to life in a two-hour energy-filled concert that had toddlers to grandparents dancing in the aisles."
