The Event

It is great to see that Guinness World Records has revealed that Professor Brian Cox has broken his own existing record for ‘Most tickets sold for a science tour’, with over 150,000 tickets sold. This is an exclusive chance to see this dazzling spectacular show in Hong Kong, whilst enjoying a gala dinner. The show is co-presented by comedian and actor Robin Ince, best-known for presenting the BBC show The Infinite Monkey Cage.
