Christmas is the season of Joy, and in this year's Christmas lecture we will be celebrating some of the most joyous and magical aspects of this wonderful subject. As the founder of Maths Week England, now the world's largest national maths festival, teacher, author and professional magician Andrew Jeffrey will explore and share some of his favourite mathematical surprises and how mathematical secrets are behind some of the most baffling magic tricks. Appropriately enough for this, the season of giving, one member of the audience will be given a genuine chance to win over 1,000,000!

Andrew claims no special talent, other than an insatiable curiosity about how and why things work, and how to be better than yesterday. He merely enjoys entertaining his audiences by combining his five senses to create the illusion of a sixth. No mathematical knowledge above GCSE level is expected or required to participate and enjoy the lecture.
