Banquet Speeches

The Banquet Speeches held by a selection of Nobel Laureates at the Nobel Banquet in Stockholm on 10 December each year are an intrinsic part of the evening's festivities.

This is the Nobel Laureates' opportunity to publicly offer their thanks and also make a personal statement if they wish to.


Listen to the 2010 Nobel Laureate in Physics Andre Geim’s humorous comments on how unconventional thinking is a prerequisite for human progress or to Literature Laureate Mario Vargas Llosa explain how the line between life and literature disappears during Nobel Week.

The banquet speeches are produced by SVT, Swedish Television, and form part of the Nobel Banquet program distributed by Nobel Media. Use a clip from these banquet speeches to provide key footage from the Nobel Banquet in Stockholm.
