November 5th – Bright Club: Fire at the Bloomsbury Theatre

Remember, remember the 5th of November, and come along to Bright Club: Fire.

We’re back at the Bloomsbury Theatre with a gig packed full of smouldering UCL talent.

Hosted by flaming hot comedian Matt Richardson, headliner will be Holly Walsh and featuring cabaret superstar Lady Carol, join ten researchers as they channel their inner comic genius to show us that university research isn’t always as serious as you might think.

The jokes will be kept burning by:

Sonja Lehtinen – UCl CoMPLEX
Malcolm Finlay – UCL Medicine
Paula Morgenstern – UCL Energy Institute
Gareth Williams – UCL School of Pharmacy
Claire Asher – Genetics, Evolution and Environment
Giorgio Savini – UCL Astrophysics Group
Matt Ingleby – UCL Centre for Languages and International Education
Sophie Scott – Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience
Steve Cross – Bright Club torch bearer

Tickets: £8
(booking fee £2.50 per transaction)

October 11th – Bright Club at the British Museum SOLD OUT

On October 11th, we’re doing a super special gig at the British Museum, where museum staff will be joining some of UCL’s finest researchers to dig out the funnier side of the museum’s collections.

There’ll be gaffes about galleries, artefact antics and curators cracking joke (but hopefully not the Roman pottery). And it’ll all be kept on track by one of London’s top comedians, David Morgan. But don’t worry, we’ll try not to Babylon.

So come along for a night of historical humour and museology mischief with:

From UCL:

Alicia Spencer-Hall on supernatural saints
Antonio Sennis on medieval monks

From the British Museum:

Mieka Harris and Laura Service will be giving a very special school session
George Benson will be taking us on a tour of the ancient Mediterranean
Tom Hockenhull shares his favourite museum merchandise

Tickets: £5 are now SOLD OUT
