EINSTEIN’S theoretical physics will be accompanied by his favourite instrument in a lecture with a difference at Dillington this weekend.

Professor Brian Foster of the Experimental Physics department at the University of Oxford will deliver a lecture on Einstein’s contribution to physics, including his Theory of Relativity.

Violinist Jack Liebeck will join Professor Foster on stage at various points to provide musical analogies to some of the points raised by the lecture.

The lecture will also look at how technological developments in Switzerland may have influenced Einstein’s work, as well as the latest updates on the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva.

The lecture will take place at Dillington House near Ilminster at 2.30pm on Sunday, February 8. Tickets cost £14, which includes tea and cake, contact the box office on 01460-52427 for details.
