Thu Oct 8 06:29:11 UTC 2015
You’re invited to an evening of science and comedy in the style of the
great panel shows (think *Good News Week* and *Spicks and Specks*), as we
take a lighter look at the top science stories of 2015 – and some of the
quirkier ones, too! It’s science as you’ve never seen it before, with this
year’s panelists including world leading researchers, gifted comedians, and
professional science communicators – all with a flair for the dramatic.
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
