Readings – Classic Science Fiction at the Cambridge Museum of Technology

Thursday March 23 at 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

£17.58

The Crystal Egg & The Remarkable Case of Davidson’s Eyes: Two visionary tales by H.G.Wells

Come for an evening of classic science fiction at Cambridge Museum of Technology. Robert Lloyd Parry, who is best known for his spine chilling renditions of 19th century ghost stories, has now turned his attention to the work of H.G. Wells, one of the founding fathers of the Science Fiction genre.

Suspend belief for a few hours and dream, in the words of Wells ‘of the oddest possibilities of intercommunication in the future, of spending five minutes on the other side of the world, or of being watched in our most secret operations by unsuspected eyes’.

These words are strangely prophetic in the week that broke the news of surveillance using smart tvs in the heart of people’s homes.

The readings will take place in the  atmospheric Main Engine Room and there will be a break for visitors to explore the historic pumping station. All profits will go to the Museum’s Engineer’s House appeal.

Tickets £17.58 (includes booking fee) available from Eventbrite http://bit.ly/2j3Oym5
