How does doing maths and writing stories compare? What role is mathematics playing when it is used in literature? Are stories important to understanding mathematics? Do writers have eureka moments?

Marcus du Sautoy, Professor of Maths at Oxford and author of "The Music of the Primes", and Mark Haddon, author of "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time" and keen mathematician discuss the fashionable art/science interface.

Admission is free. No ticket or advanced booking required.

Doors will open at 5.45pm and seats will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
