Birmingham Popular Maths Lectures 

The Birmingham Popular Mathematics Lectures are open to all members of the public and the University who are interested in the study of Mathematics. They are particularly suitable for those studying Mathematics at A Level and we also welcome advanced GCSE students. Young people are welcome on their own, with parents or with a school group.

The lectures are free of charge and in general there is no need to register. The lectures runs in the Watson Building (School of Mathematics) on the last Wednesday of each month, arriving from 6.30pm onwards for a 7pm start. Please note that the LMS lectures in September have different timing and you will need to register, see below. 

If you are travelling by minibus please contact us to arrange parking, otherwise please see the University's general travel information which includes a campus map, where the Watson Building is labelled R15.
