Meet the award winning poet and scientist Rachel McCarthy at the Museum as she takes us on a sociological journey through the Periodic Table; from its early formation to the chemistry of the present day. This part-lecture and part-poetry reading from her book 'Element' questions not only the relationship between science and poetry, but how we as a society engage with one of the greatest developments of our age - the Periodic Table.
Doors open at 18:30.
