Professor Christopher Reynolds is one of nineteen academic speakers taking part in this year's Hay Festival, one of the most prestigious literary festivals in the world.

The University of Cambridge has partnered with the Festival for eleven years to deliver The Cambridge Series which gives a taste of the research being conducted at the University.

The Series is part of the University’s public engagement work and draws on the University’s two flagship public engagement events; the Cambridge Science Festival and the Cambridge Festival of Ideas. This year the Hay Festival runs from 25 May to 2 June.

Professor Christopher Reynolds, Sidney Fellow in Natural Sciences and Plumian Professor of Astronomy at Cambridge, will be at the festival on Tuesday 28 May to discuss how black holes stretch our understanding of space-time to the limits and power some of the most energetic phenomena in the Universe.

You can find out all the details about the event and how to book on the Hay Festival website.
