It’s the Summer Science Exhibition at the Royal Society! Summer is the time to pop to the home of the people who run British Science to catch labs showing off their work in a huge exhibition. For the third year in a row they’ve invited us over to add some chaos to the mix, with a night of science jokes, talks, demos and mucking about.
The gig starts at 7.00pm (it’s an early one, so arrive from 6.30) and will finish at about half eight. You don’t even need to book tickets or nothing. Just turn up! Look! https://royalsociety.org/events/2015/06/science-showoff. We’re in the nice big dining room in the basement, and directions to get there are here: https://royalsociety.org/visit-us/london/
Tonight the following science brainboxes will take to the stage and entertain and enlighten you for 9 minutes:
Steve Cross – MC, science comedian and troublemaker
Mark Purver – Jodcast host, physicist turned mega statto
Fiona Russell – Pain scientist with a sideline in chillis.
Kostas Tokatlidis – Biochemist from Glasgow
Dan Schreiber – comedian and fact repository
Megan Whewell – PhD student in space
Sarah Day – science writer, geologist and rock fan (GET IT?)
Hold on tight folks, it’s going to be an exhilarating ride!
