Ticket alert: booking opens 9am, 22 April.
The Science Museum plays host to a collection of beautiful minds this summer, as 17 speakers and performers come together for TEDxLondon. Hosted by broadcaster Lauren Laverne, the lineup includes Professor Stephen Hawking (via video), comedian Al Murray and author Gaia Vance (author of the magnificent Adventures in the Anthropocene).
Like any TED-inspired event, each speaker will spend 10 or 15 minutes enthusing the audience about their particular passion, from black holes to movie special effects.
TEDxLondon takes place on 17 June, noon-7pm at the Science Museum. Tickets can be booked from 22 April (likely to sell out sharpish), and cost £65 (£50 concession). Ticket cost includes refreshments and entry to the after-show party. @tedxlondon, Facebook
