Science Says! 2017

Science Says!

Science Says! is science as you’ve never seen it before, and with a lot more laughter! Join us as brilliant scientists, gifted comedians and talented communicators use their wits and wittiness to uncover the top science discoveries of 2017 – and a few of the odder ones, too!

It’s an evening in the style of the great panel shows – think mixing Mock the WeekSpicks and Specks, and just a dash of QI. Last years’ challenges included singing about gravity waves, solving how pandas can be encouraged to mate, and miming how rollercoasters might cure kidney stones.

Hosted once again by scientist and comedian Dr Joel Gilmore, we guarantee you’ll be crying by the end, almost certainly of laughter! Oh, and you’ll learn about some great science, too! Book quickly, though – we’re expecting sold out sessions!
