Consensus - Science Talks: Bill Bailey, Richard Dawkins, Richard Fortey, Richard Wiseman, Jonny Berliner, Quentin Cooper
Join Bill Bailey, Richard Dawkins, Richard Wiseman, Richard Fortey and Quentin Cooper for original science presentations, group discussion, geek-pop by Jonny Berliner, and maybe even the answer to the meaning of life!
To be held at ExCel London on Saturday 16 November, a science event has never before been attempted in a venue of this size. Don’t miss the chance to be able to say, “I was there!”
Run by science charity Entangled Bank Events, the event is fundraising for a bronze statue of Alfred Russel Wallace, Charles Darwin's contemporary and the co-discoverer of Evolution by Natural Selection, who died 100 years ago.
See www.entangled-bank.co.uk/consensus.html for further information.
**Please note: Taking a tiny break from his sell-out Qualmpeddler tour, Bill Bailey will present a specially-commissioned talk, with pictures and video, entitled ‘The Making of Jungle Hero’. This appearance is NOT part of his Qualmpeddler tour.
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
