Five renowned speakers, no script, and 15 minutes each to blow your mind. Featuring feminist campaigner Caroline Criado-Perez on the gender data gap, astrobiologist Lewis Dartnell on aliens and space exploration, journalist and comedian Steve Richards on the rise of anti-establishment feeling, writer and documentary maker Polly Morland on personal metamorphosis, and David Bellos on Les Misérables – the revolutionary novel of the 19th century. This is an event you won’t want to miss.
The world can change in fifteen minutes. This year at NNF we'll be hosting our very own 5x15 event - five speakers with fifteen minutes each on the theme of 'revolution'. Past, presents, future - the revolutionary world in life and literature will be explored in this unique event.
This event is part of our City of Literature Weekend, 26 - 28 May
