Lillingstone Lecture Programme

Over the 2016/2017 and 2017/2018 academic years we were proud to host a series of free lectures for the local community in the Lillingstone Trust Community Laboratory in the Discovery Centre, thanks to the support of the Lillingstone Trust.  Details of the first lecture of the 2018/2019 series are below.

Wednesday, 3rd October
Does the Medical-Psychological Tradition, or the Structural Tradition best explain the Phenomenon of British Serial Murder? By Professor David Wilson
Professor Emeritus David Wilson, one of the country’s leading Criminologists, will discuss the phenomenon of British serial murder and the two competing traditions which try to make sense of this type of crime.  He will use his practical background of working with violent men – some of whom were serial murderers, and his academic writing (particularly his book A History of British Serial Killing) to consider how we might reduce the incidence of serial murder within the UK.


All lectures start at 6pm, and last approximately one hour. Tea and coffee will be served from 5.45pm. Please contact Lucy Beckett (This email address is being protected from spambots.

We have full disabled access to our Community Laboratory. Keep looking at this page as more lectures will be added during the year.


On the first Wednesday of every month the U3A use our community laboratory and meeting room for their Science group.
