About the Darwin Day Celebration Lectures

Each year, the University of Central Lancashire hosts an annual Darwin Day Celebration Lecture. The lecture is an important academic event - Darwin Day is a worldwide celebration of science and reason, and the University of Central Lancashire has hosted nine previous lectures by distinguished academics. The lectures are held in the 450 seat Darwin Lecture Theatre (School of Psychology, Darwin Building). The building was named after Darwin following a vote among academic staff, to honour Darwin's contribution to our understanding of humanity and our place in the Universe.
