The Lost Lectures

The Lost Lectures 7 & 8 – Lost At Sea

The Lost Lectures hit the high seas in a unique production ‘lost At Sea’ within an enchanting world of underwater wonders, strange submersibles, tantalizing talks and more inflatable’s than you can shake a slippery squid at! This was without doubt our most sea-worthy production to date, a spectacular adventure with amazing speakers, inspiring talks and an entire audience on inflatable rings…all beautifully punctuated with a familiar ‘POP’ of a bursting seat! The entire audience bobbed blissfully through the evening (well more or less) as we transformed a secluded Lighthouse deep in the Docks of London. Talks from adventurers, marine biologist, environmental commissioners, iconic photographers, retronauts, CERN Scientists and Sixth Form Poets meant an amazing lineup, in an incredible venue, set on the river, with a backdrop that made you proud to be a Londoner. A huge thanks goes to the whole team at Lost HQ and to all the Losltings who made it home safe from the high-seas. You know who you Aaarrrrgghhh.
