Are You Sci-curious?: Festival Of The Spoken Nerd
After a year of sell-out shows in London and science festivals around the country, Festival Of The Spoken Nerd are taking their unique mix of facts and fun on tour around the UK!
Join three of the best (and nerdiest) performers for an
evening of comedy, science, music, maths and interactive experiments as they ask those all-important questions: How can you use a parabola to set stuff on fire? How does the angler fish make love? And how dangerous can things get with just numbers?

This event takes place at Cambridge Junction, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Festival Of The Spoken Nerd is the brain child of stand-up mathematician Matt Parker, geek songstress Helen Arney and experiments guy Steve Mould. These wonderfully nerdy performers present a celebration of science, comedy and unashamed geekiness, with live experiments, audience participation, and occasional specially selected guest scientists and comedy headliners.
There's always time for questions at the end, and extra marks are given for showing your workings. Be warned, sometimes things do go BANG!
