Music and the Geek. A night of entertainment by geeks for everyone…
7 years ago
As part of British Science Week 2016, Science Grrl and the British Science Association are putting on a free music-science-comedy-ceilidh to celebrate STEM!
This over 18s event will be headlined by the wonderful Helen Arney, science presenter, musician and comedian performing some of her brilliant science based songs. Helen has performed her third award-winning solo show “Voice of an Angle” at the Edinburgh Fringe and London’s Soho Theatre, as well as working with Prof. Brian Cox, Robin Ince and Tim Minchin in “Uncaged Monkeys” and recently finishing a national tour doing “Festival of the Spoken Nerd”.
Joining us on stage will be Jollyboat, award winning musical comedians, Ed and Tommy Croft with their new show Nerd Play. Previously based in Liverpool, Jollyboat have performed their 5 star show across the globe and their new show gets geeky with Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Roleplaying and of course pirates! Foxdog Studios will be bringing their insane, interactive, tech filled comedy show and finally the fantastic Science Ceilidh will be there to get us dancing until we get blisters on our feet.
It’s a free event but if you enjoy it we would like to encourage people to put a donation towards Science Grrl and the British Science Association.
Science Grrl is a broad-based, grassroots organisation celebrating and supporting women in science; a network of people who are passionate about passing on our love of science on to the next generation. Science Grrl is a not-for-profit private company limited by guarantee, company number 08602951. It is run by enthusiastic volunteers, the majority of whom are working scientists. There are local Science Grrl chapters which host informal and friendly gatherings providing peer support and a setting for developing events and programmes which encourage girls and women from the local community to consider a future in science.
The British Science Association’s (BSA) vision is of a future where science is seen as a fundamental part of culture and society at large, instead of set apart from it. The aim of our event is to encourage people from all walks of life to come along and enjoy science and see that they can get involved even if they’re not directly involved in a scientific career/degree.
