THE GREAT SPERM RACE

Dr Allan Pacey

MONDAY 22 APRIL 2013, 6.00pm

(rescheduled from 22 March. If you were registered for the event previously, you do not need to re-register and we will automatically book you in for the new date and time)

Octagon Centre, Western Bank, S10 2TG

Join Dr Allan Pacey for a one-off screening of his award-winning drama-documentary, The Great Sperm Race, followed by a discussion with some of the team who made the film.

This film dramatically explains the science of conception by scaling up the process to human size. The journey that sperm make to the egg is probably the most important undertaken and is a story filled with drama, death and destruction. There are insurmountable odds, and with only one survivor it is amazing that women ever get pregnant at all!

This event is free of charge and open to the public. The film and Q&A session will be followed by a drinks reception. Please note that the film is not suitable for children under 15 years of age.
