 Sea Soup

Back by popular demand, we present our most loved science geek Russell Arnott. He has been an oceanographer, science teacher, punk-rock guitarist and Outreach Officer for WhaleFest: Incredible Oceans.

You might remember his talk on Octopus a couple of years ago and if you haven’t seen him speak before, this is not a Sunday Assembly to miss! This time he’s coming to speak to us about Plankton.


Plankton are the microscopic plants and animals that inhabit the world’s oceans, rivers and lakes. He says: ‘These amazing and often overlooked organisms not only act as the base for the ocean’s foodwebs but also produce a majority of our atmospheric oxygen. They also have the ability to regulate our climate and if harnessed, could be the panacea to climate change that we’ve been waiting for.​’
This talk will introduce you to the wonderous world of plankton by showcasing all of their weird and wonderful shapes and abilities.

We are VERY excited about this.

And if that’s not enough, we’ll be singing our hearts out, hearing stories from members of the community, drinking a vat of tea/coffee and eating a heck of a lot of biscuits afterwards too.

BSL interpretation will be provided.

We can’t wait to see you there and have fun celebrating life with you all!

Sunday Assembly London is free to attend and runs entirely on donations. Please support us if you can to keep it free for those who can’t.
