Nine Lessons and Carols for Curious People

Fri 14 Dec 2018

Nine Lessons and Carols for Curious People

A merry combination of ideas, experiments, science, songs, laughs and more.

Robin Ince (The Infinite Monkey Cage, Book Shambles) once again hosts his iconic annual celebration with a top line up of special guests. This is Nine Lessons and Carols for Curious People. A slightly different name, but the same kinda shambles as always. Expect another huge bill of amazing guests each night from physicists to poets, stand-ups to songwriters. Hopefully, you’ll leave with a song in your heart and a reading list in your pocket.

As always, profits from these shows will be going to our chosen charities. Once again The Cosmic Shambles Network team will be collecting for the Trussell Trust Food Bank at these gigs, so please bring along some non-perishable food and household items to contribute. And, as always, profits from these shows will be going to our chosen charities.
