Yet another clandestine London pop-up has appeared and this time it’s got its thinking cap on. The Lost Lectures are a series of 12 minute talks from experts, enthusiasts and odd-bods from the worlds of science, art, technology, music, entertainment, design, business and environment aiming to inject a well needed burst of energy into the stuffy world of lectures. And in true pop-up form, each location is a secret. We went along to one of the sold out evenings last week and although there were a few teething problems, this is a great idea that can only get better with time. Our suggestion? 12 minutes isn’t quite long enough- it seemed to be over just as the speakers were getting warmed up! Tickets for the January dates sold out like a flash and tickets for March 21/22 have just been released. Book now. Sonya Barber
