The Coca Cola London Eye is staging a six-part speaker series on board its capsules, centred on Netflix drama The Crown.

The speaker series began on Tuesday (8 November), and will run until 24 November. Guests cab book tickets to hear industry speakers who have worked behind the scenes on series.

Talks will take place every Tuesday and Thursday for three weeks. Guests can hear from industry names such as costume designer Michele Clapton, whose previous work includes Game of Thrones, and executive producer Andy Harries, who worked alongside Helen Mirren on The Queen. Harries will speak on 17 November, while Clapton will appear on 24 November. Other speakers include locations manager Pat Karam and makeup and hair designer Ivana Primorac. 

The experience will last an hour, and will take guests on a double rotation of the London Eye while they hear industry insights and take part in a live Q&A session. Pommery champagne will be on offer in the London Eye capsules.

In addition to the speaker series, the Coca Cola London Eye will undergo a regal takeover, all in the name of Netflix's 'The Crown'. The costumes worn by the starring actors will be on display on the London Eye site and a fact-filled pocket guide will be given to every visitor.

In March, the London Eye revealed an interactive Charlie and the Chocolate Factory experience. In September, Netflix came third in the CoolBrands list for 2016/17.
