Science Says! 2016

Science Says!

You’re invited to an event of science and comedy in the style of the great panel shows (a la Spicks and Specks and 8 out of 10 Cats). Join world leading researchers, gifted comedians, and professional science communicators as they battle wits and wittiness to uncover the top science stories of 2016 – and some of the quirkier ones, too!

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!
