The Royal Institution (Ri) is an independent charity and a respected UK leader in science communication, dedicated to connecting scientists with the curious public.

Support the Ri through this year’s Golden Ticket Raffle for your chance to win two tickets to a live filming of the 2016 CHRISTMAS LECTURES Supercharged: Fuelling the future.

This year we are celebrating the 80th anniversary of the first television broadcast of the CHRISTMAS LECTURES on the BBC. This lecture series is the world’s oldest science programme and engages audiences of all ages with spectacular demonstrations and the best in science communication. Previous Lecturers have included Sir David Attenborough, Danielle George, Richard Dawkins and, of course, Michael Faraday.

We receive no government funding so we can only continue this inspiring education programme with the help of you, our supporters.

Every raffle ticket purchased will help us bring science into the living rooms of families all across the nation.
