Thursday the 22nd March marks our first ever City of London Showoff, bringing funny experts and nerdy comedians together for hilarious stories and quirky facts about the Square Mile.
Expect history, architecture, planning, civil engineering, jokes, entertainment and strong opinions from a lineup including:
Steve Cross – nerd comedian and the brains behind the Showoff empire. Once invested in a nigerian budget airline and lost all his money.
Ed Jefferson – journalist, writer and the inventor of the Waterloo and City line pub crawl.
Pip Jefferis – Civil engineer and roadbuilder
Oli Broadbent – Concrete fanatic and thinker of big thoughts
Charlotte Mykura – genetic scientist and London obsessive
Hannah Cameron – Landscape architect, designer and maker of plastic pineapples
Eleanor Morton – genius of the comedy world
The gig is at The City Centre, which is attached to the Guildhall in the City. It starts at 19:30 sharp and tickets come from here. They are £13 which includes a free wine, beer or soft drink (and more drink is available after that).
