Renowned cook Delia Smith swaps filling bellies to feeding minds with her latest thought-provoking book, which takes a science-led look at just what it means to be human.

You Matter: The Human Solution doesn’t shy away from trying to unpick life’s big questions. Why do we exist? What is the source of human genius? What’s our collective responsibility and place in an expanding and seemingly never-ending universe?

During this special event, Smith joins us to discuss these all-encompassing topics in more detail, while pondering the philosophical and spiritual quandaries they provoke.
