 An Evening Of Unnecessary Detail

The team behind Festival of the Spoken Nerd are putting on their biggest Evening of Unnecessary Detail so far. In collaboration with Conway Hall, it’s a comedy and science variety night with more unnecessary detail than ever before. To make room for all the extra unnecessary detail, several required details have had to go. So come along and see the show at a place and on a date in November, starting at a time and finishing at a different time.

It’s all hosted by stand-up mathematician Matt Parker, starring geek songstress Helen Arney and experiments guy Steve Mould along with the UK’s finest scientists, comedians and some people you vaguely recognise from YouTube.

Concession prices apply for the following groups: 

Student, OAP, Unemployed, Librarian, Teacher.

Recommended for ages 16+, contains strong language and scenes of Full Frontal Nerdity.
