Pop-Up Lunchtime Talks – Saturday

The Cornish Bank

12 P.M. – 2 P.M.


For two days, and for two days only, we are bringing a free weekend celebration of science, arts, mayhem, and music right in the centre of Falmouth! 

As part of the Pop-Up Curiosity Shop of Science and Culture, there will be an exciting talks programme. All lunchtime talks will take place at the original vault the Cornish Bank.

Or sign up to one of our Pop-Up Walkie Talkies including Hornets vs. Bees, A Pond Wandering, and Plastic Oceans.

The Pop-Up Shop is part of FUTURES: A Festival of Discovery, a festival with a broad range of events and activities delivered by universities across the South West of England. Agile Rabbit is delivering this event on behalf of the University of Exeter, celebrating and highlighting its vibrant, fascinating, and impactful research.
