TIMANDRA HARKNESS:
BIG DATA
Big Data knows you better than you
know yourself, or so it claims. It can
predict what you’ll buy, where you’ll be
the victim of crime and when you’ll have
a heart attack. But how well do you
know Big Data? Demystify the subject
with author and comedian Timandra
Harkness, complete with bad puns,
audience participation and an electric
shock machine.

WIMBLEDONWINDMILL
EVENT
With Norman Plastow
Join us as we celebrate the bicentenary
of one of Wimbledon’s most iconic
landmarks. Built in 1817, it came to the
end of its working life in 1864. Having
survived an attempt by Earl Spencer to
demolish the mill, it was converted into
living accommodation. Norman Plastow,
founder of the Windmill Museum, will
take you through the fascinating story of
this remarkable building.
