You’re invited to an evening of science and comedy in the style of the great panel shows (think Good News Week and Spicks and Specks), as we take a lighter look at the top science stories of 2015 – and some of the quirkier ones, too! It’s science as you’ve never seen it before, with this year’s panelists including world leading researchers, gifted comedians, and professional science communicators – all with a flair for the dramatic.
Hosted by well known figure of stage and science, Dr Joel Gilmore, you’ll be guaranteed a night of entertainment, competition and comedy – and perhaps even education! So secure your tickets early and join us in November to find out what Science Says!
