SCIENCE SHOWOFF BRISTOL 10 – Jan 22nd, Grain Barge

Hello Bristol!

Do you like science?

Do you like fun?

If you answered yes to at least one of those you’re our target market. And if you didn’t answer yes, then you’re our target audience to convert into a target market! We have got a gig that will suit you all PERFECTLY.

Tonight we fill the Grain Barge with science and comedy and chaos, and all for the low price of £5, ALL OF WHICH will go to charity. Tickets:

Here are the amazing science brains who will be taking to the stage to fill your mind with wonder and amazement:

Steve Cross – Science comedian, compere, troublemaker.

Will Davies – Eating healthily is one of the classic new years resolutions, and Will is here to help! With antennae!

Aaron Boardley – Ever got a song stuck in your head? We’ll either find out why that’s the case, or irritate the heck out of your ear canal in the process.

Clare Duxbury – The Audience Effect: Why you screw up more when people are watching.

Jon Chouler – Join me on an interactive demonstration (with lots of audience participation!) to show you how Microbial Fuel Cell technology works, and how it can potentially be used as a novel way to test fresh water sources in developing countries.

Audrey Nailor – “Why haven’t we cured cancer yet?” I WILL TELL YOU WHY.

Aoife Glass – Sliding through your skin, squirming through your guts or crawling through your hair. They might make you itch, but parasites are amazing beasties, and they’ve evolved to live in some of the most hostile environments of all; inside other animals. Prepare to feel just a little bit queasy.

Tim Maynard – Come and join Tim and some of his weird and wonderful six legged critters for 9 mins in the World of The Mini Beast. Your very life might depend on it!!

Sarah Snell-Pym – Ada Lovelace has become famous in Geek Circles in the last few year, the victorian lady who wrote the first computer programme – *before* there were computers.  But what is the story behind it all? Meet Ada Puppet and come on a whirl wind adventure involving maths, victorian society and the joy and sorrows of gambling.


The gig is at the Grain Barge in Bristol on January 22nd. Doors open at 7pm with the gig starting at 7.30. We should be done by 10 and there will be an intermission. Tickets are £5 (all of that money goes to the Bristol Nature Network)
