With concerns increasing around the severe shift in the Earth’s climate, we are working with artist Michèle Noach on an evening of immersive entertainment that aims to stimulate discussion and reflect on the feelings ice evokes in us all.
On the evening of Thursday 16 March, our building in South Kensington, London, will be transformed for Ice Station RGS, a unique event offering the opportunity to hear from indigenous Arctic voices, those who have trekked to the poles, and individuals at the cutting edge of policy and research into our cold environments.
In addition to listening to talks in the Ondaatje Theatre, you’ll be able to chat with speakers and other attendees in the ice bar, put your knowledge of all things frozen to the test in a quiz, and discover items from our extraordinary historical Collections. There will also be music, poetry and book readings, art, films, and photography – all inspired by low temperatures. View the event programme to find out more.
Confirmed guests for the evening include multi-award winning veteran news broadcaster and author John Simpson, poet and writer Nancy Campbell, stage and screen actor and writer Isabel Adomakoh Young, and musician and Penguin Café member Arthur Jeffes, along with many more.
So come along and immerse yourself in all things ice as we celebrate the world’s frozen landscapes.
The event starts at 6.30pm on Thursday 16 March, and tickets are £20 or £18 for RGS-IBG members.
