    Invisibility cloaks have been created for light, sound and water. If we can make all these invisible, what else can we design cloaks for? It was once hoped that invisibility cloaks would allow us to protect buildings from earthquakes, but it was deemed impossible. Daniel Colquitt demonstrates how mathematics provides us with an elegant solution.

    Event booking has closed for 2017. We hope you enjoyed the Festival. Join us next year!
