Event: 24 Hour Inspire, 19th/20th April

Thursday 19 to Friday 20 April 2018, 5pm-5pm
Lecture Theatre 1, Hicks Building, University of Sheffield, Hounsfield Road, Sheffield S3 7RH

24 Hour Inspire is back for its 6th year! Join colleagues from across our University for this fast-paced, fact-filled, lecture marathon running from 5pm Thursday 19 to 5pm Friday 20 April in the Hicks Building. This year all funds raised from the event will go to charities Impact Living and Rotherham Hospice.

Join us for back-to-back talks over 24 hours from academics across our University in a celebration of knowledge and learning. The event runs annually in memory of Dr Tim Richardson, the founder of Inspiration for Life and Dr Victoria Henshaw, from Urban Studies. This year it is also dedicated to Sheffield alumna Dr Maryam Raftari, who is currently undergoing chemotherapy for ovarian cancer.

This year’s programme features an exciting lineup of speakers on a whole range of subjects from the Chemistry behind sweets in Harry Potter’s wizarding world, to the Beatles’ influence on medical diagnosis, to the ‘Gothic Slot’ running through the graveyard hour.

Purchase your 24 Hour Inspire wristband on the door to access the full 24 hours of talks for a minimum donation of £10 (£7 concessions). You’ll also get a complementary hot drink and bun from the tuck shop and access to 24 hours of boardgaming. If you can only stay for one talk, the minimum donation is £3.

If you can’t make all the talks you can tune in to Radio Inspire – a pop-up channel broadcasting the talks as well as music, interviews, quizzes, and spoken word programmes. Listen in on www.forgetoday.com/radio/radioinspire.
