Science Showoff BRISTOL 3 – May 23rd, Grain Barge

Hi there to the South-West of England. You guys are looking great. Have you been working out? . And you’ve finally sorted out that whole slavery thing you had going on? Nice work.

We’re coming over to run another gig, featuring the cream of the region’s science communication talent. The trouble is that we don’t know who they are, which is why we need you YES YOU to sign up to perform a 9-minute set about science for us. We’re looking for scientists, science communicators, science broadcasters, science teachers, historians and philosophers of science, students, science popularisers and anyone else with something to show off about science.

The gig will be on the Grain Barge (which is here: on the evening of May 23rd.

Doors for the gig are at 7.00pm, and it starts with an introduction from compere Steve Cross. The night then runs in two halves, each an hour long. Signed-up performers will take to the stage to show off their science in any way they want. They might:

Show a film they just made
Try out a new demo
Practice a new science comedy set
Tell us about their new discovery
Perform an 9-minute play about science
Play their new song about protons
Tell us what they’ve been up to
Predict the future
Give us a taster of their science-themed Edinburgh show
Read us their latest science poem
Try out a bit of a new science lesson on us
Play us a short radio documentary
Experiment on the crowd
Read us a blogpost
Perform an interpretive dance about science

Or anything else…

Every set lasts 9 minutes or less. There’s a 20 minute intermission and we finish by 10pm, to give us an hour of picking each other’s brains over beer and to form new plans and partnerships before closing time.

You can sign up to perform here:

See you in May!
