19th March 2013 – Bright Club: SECRETS at the Wilmington Arms

Have you got a secret? We do, we have loads, and you might just find out what a few of them are at March’s Bright Club: Secrets where we will be digging into the secrets of history, science funding, and the body.

To help us discover the clouded, conspiratorial, covert and cryptic will be your comedians:

Nish Kumar as your MC
Richard Sandling headlining

Joining them will be some absolute brain boxes bringing you cloak and dagger sets from unpublished and obscure sources:
Paula Morgenstern – an expert on energy in the workplace
Antonio Sennis – bringing us medieval history
Mike Galsworthy – revealing how science really gets funded
Andrew Nevins – on misheard song lyrics
Leun Otten – on brains, salmons, and red herrings

19th February – Bright Club: Culture at the Wilmington Arms

For our second gig of 2013, and our first at the Wilmington Arms, we present to you: Bright Club: CULTURE.

While our academic and researchers are busy getting all LGBT at the Bloomsbury Theatre, come and find out how museums, novels, plays, TV, music and loads of other cultural forms really work. Meet the characters who hide in the shadows and hear about the weird ways in which people make art happen.

Tickets are £5:

This gig is a fundraiser for Arts Emergency who campaign to make degrees and careers in arts and culture available to everyone. Once the venue is paid for all proceeds go to the charity – all acts are performing for free.

Headlining will be Holly Burn, part comedy, part cabaret all brilliant, and your MC will be Steve Cross, fresh from a solid schedule of compering gigs about science, museums and other flavours of intellectual entertainment

Your cultural speakers will be:
Fiona Laird (theatre director)
Will Eaves (novelist)
Rachel Souhami (museum curator)
Sarah Heenan (writer and director)
Marc Burrows (musician)
Jennie Jacobs (actor)
