Another Evening of Unnecessary Detail

Saturday 17 March: 7:00pm - 9:30pm

Babbage Lecture Theatre, New Museums Site Downing Street, CB2 3RS

The team behind Festival of the Spoken Nerd are back! As well as being an event where 80% of the words in the title start with a vowel, this is also an evening where - of the 16 unique letters in that title - 31.25% of them are used more than once. It’s hosted by Spoken Nerd’s Helen Arney and Steve Mould along with some of Cambridge’s scientists, miscellaneous experts and comedians.

This year’s line-up includes:
- Helen Scales – talking fish & stuff
- Francesca Day – talking theoretical physics & stuff
- Kat Arney – talking genetics & stuff
- Katie Steckles – talking maths & stuff
- And your hosts Helen Arney and Steve Mould, talking about The Element In The Room.
