Lost Lectures started in 2012 as an underground series of talks, aimed at transporting audiences into a new world of ideas in incredible secret locations. We are one of the original ‘immersive’ companies who’ve been pushing the boundaries of immersive entertainment and redefining the traditional lecture for the 21st century.
Our journey has taken us from lighthouses in East London to fishing docks in Brooklyn, from derelict theatres at Ally Pally to decommissioned Olympic pools in Berlin. Throughout all of our adventures, our purpose has remained the same: to connect people with new ideas shaping their world and encouraging them to follow their curiosity by stepping ‘into the untold’.
We’ve been lucky enough to have an incredible array of speakers join us through our adventures: from cultural icons (Amanda Lepore, Blood Orange, Little Sims) to groundbreaking scientists (Steve Jones, Sally Davies, Ben Goldacre) to creative pioneers (Carol Ann Duffy, Mr Bingo, Chapman Brothers) and we’ve had over 30,000 loyal ‘Lostlings’ embrace our experimental antics at our events. Our online channels, where we share all our talks for free has generated millions of views from fans across the world.
2019 marks the start of a new chapter at Lost Lectures where we will diversify our series in a bid to satisfy a growing need for connection around thought provoking, progressive content. We will continue to do this in the way we always have, with passion, imagination, experimentation and healthy dose of play.
