Grab a pint and join Science Oxford for a cabaret with a difference as six stellar sci-performers riff on the theme ‘A little knowledge is… a dangerous thing.’ The rise of the internet and smart phones means we have instant access to more information, but does that mean we no longer make mistakes? From the astronomical errors and universal blunders that have shaped science history to the dangers of sex in the animal kingdom and perils of encrypting your private messages, our performers are poised ready to show us how risky it is to assume everyone’s an expert

Featuring Chris Lintott from BBC Sky at Night, Alison Woollard, a Royal Institution Christmas Lecturer, and Lucy Rogers from Robot Wars, plus digital troublemaker Terence Eden, maths folk singer Kyle Evans and zoologist Joanna Bagniewska and our compere, Helen Arney.

This event is part of the IF Oxford Science and Ideas Festival 12 to 22 October 2018. IF Oxford is operating a Pay What You Decide (PWYD) ticketing system. This works by enabling you to pre-book events without paying for a ticket beforehand. Afterwards, you have the opportunity to pay what you decide you want to, or can afford. If you prefer, you can make a donation when you book.

There may be tickets available on the door – spaces may be reallocated if ticket holders are late.
