Radstock Museum runs two series of TALKS.

Bygone Days talks celebrate both local and national history. These talks are often held at The Somer Centre in Midsomer Norton but please check the details carefully for each talk below.

Science in Radstock talks are ‘popular science’ talks; an eclectic mixture of current science disciplines and past, present and future technologies. These talks are usually held in Radstock, at the Radstock Working Men’s Club, but please check the details carefully for each talk below.


SCIENCE IN RADSTOCK TALK

Tuesday November 19th.

 ‘Mysteries and Misconceptions of Tides’ by Ian Brown

How much do we know about the Tides? Anyone who has been to Weston-Super-Mare will know the importance of tides. High tides, coupled with stormy weather conditions are a serious threat to our coasts. Yet what causes the tides and why are there (usually) two tides a day? 

The presentation, by Dr Ian Brown, will provide explanations with many interesting images. We might even learn how to harvest free energy from the tides!

Ian Brown recently retired from Regent’s University London after 53 years of lecturing to undergraduates. His specialism is making Science appealing to everyone: he is a regular presenter at the Masterclasses for gifted children given at the Royal Institution of Great Britain and their regional centres.

His family has had a presence in Radstock for over 160 years.

Radstock Working Men’s Club:  7:30pm: Admission £3. Under 18 years FREE.
