Nine Lessons and Carols for Curious People

‘Long may it brighten our bleak midwinter with the light of reason and silliness’ The Guardian

Robin Ince (The Infinite Monkey CageBook Shambles) is back to host another four nights of the acclaimed Nine Lessons and Carols for Curious People.

After sold-out runs in 2017 and 2018, this annual celebration combining ideas, experiments, science, songs, comedy, poetry and more returns in 2019 for more eclectic mayhem. As always, expect a huge bill of amazing guests each night from comedians to chemists and singers to statisticians. And this year, for the first time ever, there’s a special matinee edition of the show specifically curated for families.

Once again, profits from these shows will be going to our chosen charities and we will also be collecting for The Trussell Trust Food Bank. Proudly presented by The Cosmic Shambles Network.
