Food scientist and doctor Stu Farrimond joins us (virtually) on 28 January to reveal five scientifically proven ways to rethink your routine.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have had to cancel our virtual lecture with Dr Stu Farrimond on Thursday 28 January. Anyone who has purchased a ticket will be contacted directly.


Why is it hard to motivate myself to exercise? Will being vegan make me healthier? Should I drink my first coffee as soon as I wake up or wait a while? What's the best way to fall – and stay – asleep? Join Dr Stuart Farrimond as he answers these lifestyle questions and many more, taken from his new book The Science of Living.

Dr Stu will cast his scientific eye over a typical day in our lives, breaking it down into morning, afternoon, evening and night-time routines.

Utilising the latest research in psychology, nutrition, biology, and physics, he will explore the science behind our daily living habits so we can make better informed decisions throughout the day.

In this interactive event, Dr Stu will field your questions about sleep, work, diet, rest, love and exercise – so bring all your ‘I wonder why?’ ponderings that you’ve always wanted an answer for. Dr Stu will bust myths and reveal science-based life hacks to help you become healthier, happier, and more productive.

You won't need a microphone or webcam to join, just a keyboard to type your questions for Stu.

The event is available globally. If you are joining us from outside the United Kingdom, please use this time zone converter to check your local live streaming time.
