The Lost Lectures

The Lost Lectures 5 & 6 – The Lost World.

Lostlings were instructed to forget their compasses and leave maps at home as we entered a world of enchanting talks, strange scents, flying globes and fanciful fauna: this was ‘The Lost World’ a long-forgotten land and home to May’s selection of speakers. From Moose’s musings to foodscape feasts, Sexual equality to Olympic Dreams, not to mention live taxidermy, beatjazz basslines, historical heroics  and much more, this was the lecture that put ‘Lost’ on the map…an unforgettable flight of fancy in the rather spectacular Union Chapel, Islington.
