Last night we went along to check out the fourth instalment in a series of new events, The Lost Lectures, where incredible speakers give enchanting talks from secret locations around the city.
 
Founder Julian Kosicki-Slawinski, who was also compare for the evening, explained that he wanted to bring lectures out of their typical fuddy-duddy surroundings, decontextualise their topics and make them into accessible entertainment. The lost Lectures is a community for those who love new ideas and original experiences.
 
Last night’s secret location was Bush Hall in Shepherd’s Bush which the Lost Folk had transformed into an intriguing, atmospheric, explorers wonderland. From an events perspective we were impressed with the attention and imagination that has gone into the styling. The line-up of six eclectic speakers taught us about the National Sex Survey, planting little holes of happiness, musical engagement rings, sexist letters from Disney, mischief in Westminster, and world champion female beatboxing.
 
We are noticing a definite trend in live entertainment, whether it is music, theatre, dance or lectures, becoming more immersive and a greater fusion of multiple art forms; combining different elements to create experiences that are memorable, inspirational and tap into audience’s desire to do more than just watch and listen.
 
It was a pleasure to hear about how these talented and creative speakers had had an idea and then actually brought it to life. Overall it was an entertaining and enlightening evening which left us feeling a little bit more knowledgeable than before.
