It’s going to be Bright Club at the Bloomsbury Theatre!

That’s right, we are back at our favourite venue for a huge gig for the second time in 2013. On May 9th, Bright Club will be turning a new page to bring you an event all about Reading.

Bright Club: Reading is part of Something Else for the Weekend, the weekend section of the UCL Festival of the Arts, which will be bringing you a variety of interactive, exploratory and innovative activities also themed around reading.

As per usual at our big gigs, there will be 10 (TEN!) researchers and 3 comedians, and it’ll all be a jolly funny time.

So far we have lined up as your academic types:

Sarah Wiseman – human and computer interaction expert
Antonio Sennis – medieval historian

Tom Oleron Evans – plagiarism expert
Steve Cross – mid-ranking university administrator
Paul Hellier – engineer of bio-fuels
Andrew Pontzen – string theorist

And for the Comedians:
