Maths Inspiration is a national programme of interactive maths lecture shows for teenagers. We give 14-17 year olds a chance to experience the UK's most inspiring maths speakers presenting mathematics live in the context of exciting, real-world applications. Our shows are exceptional value for money.

We usually hold our events in theatres.  However, with the restrictions of Covid-19, we will be doing live 'shows' online until theatres re-open. We still hope to be back in theatres in the autumn of 2021 - and maybe sooner.

Maths Inspiration began in 2004. Since then over 150,000 teenagers have attended our shows making us one of the largest  and most successful maths enrichment programmes in the UK.


We also run a parallel set of events in the spring called Maths Fest.  Maths Fest is an all day event, aimed at sixth formers and Year 11s who are already 'into' maths. The all-day format includes Maths Slam in which students get a chance to present lightning maths talks, a short session on exam-technique, and time during breaks to tackle puzzles, talk to university students, and visit exhibitor stands.  Details of Maths Fest can be found at:
