Grab a pint and join us for a cabaret with a difference as six stellar acts take you out of this world with their entertaining riffs on life at the edge of existence. From outer space to the dinosaurs, we’ll be rocketing through a medley of music, comedy and creativity that’ll keep you weightless with laughter all night. If you love science, solar systems and stand up, this cabaret should be right up your Milky Way.

Featuring compere Lucy Rogers, an inventor with a sense of fun and judge on BBC2’s Robot Wars with: science presenter and zoologist Joanna Bagniewska; experimental psychologist, writer and magician Matt Tompkins; science communicator and microbiologist Katerina Johnson; Matthew Kemp and Roberta Wilkinson from Geologise Theatre; astrophysicist and comedian Isa Bonachera; plus — zoologist Matthew Greenwell talks War of the Worlds with alien invasive species; neuroscientist, science communicator and general science geek Charvy Narain debates AI and knitting, and finally, legend Chris Lintott (BBC Sky at Night / Prof of Astrophysics, University of Oxford)  talks ‘It’s never aliens’ — things that astronomers thought might be aliens, but which were not.

This event is part of the IF Oxford Science and Ideas Festival 18-28 October 2019. 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.

This event is fully booked. You can join the waiting list, or there may be tickets available on the door as spaces may be reallocated if ticket holders are late.
