Join the London Institute for Advanced Light Technologies to celebrate the International Day of Light and International Year of Glass at the Science Gallery London.

Listen to an inspiring keynote from physicist and author Dr Jess Wade, enjoy a tour of new glass artworks created by postgraduate science students and take part in panel debates with leading voices from the worlds of science, art and architecture. And make your own glass guide from molten glass, drawn from the only British-made furnace on wheels! See your piece installed in a giant fibre-optic bundle – and raise a glass to the power of light!

Your ticket gives you access to the exhibition, you can look around at any time.
