A regular column from South Holland Centre in Spalding.
Question! How many times have you heard the words ‘Science’, ‘Maths’ and ‘Comedy’ in the same sentence?
Probably not that often but perhaps you’ve not heard of the extremely funny and geeky Edinburgh Festival smash ‘Festival of the Spoken Nerd’ which explodes onto the South Holland Centre stage next month.
Our research shows that this science comedy phenomenon really is full of super awesome experiments, silly stats and geeky songs which according to comedy mag Chortle is what ‘Top Gear would be like if it were about science!’ We’ll take that. One could hypothesise that the ‘nerds’ (presenters of Festival of the Spoken Nerd) are indeed worthy of their own TV slot in this ever increasing sci-curious world. So step aside May, Hammond and Clarkson, the charismatic trio fronting Festival of the Spoken Nerd are: stand-up mathematician Matt Parker, experiments maestro Steve ‘Danger’ Mould, and geek songstress Helen Arney.
And their aim? To deliver graph-a-minute fun on an unprecedented linear scale when they bring their show to the South Holland Centre on Wednesday, November 11 at 8pm.
Of course, it wouldn’t be science without some experiments and a few explosions – with this show you get both so expect a bit of fire juggling and smoke!
In conclusion: we’ve never had anything like this in Spalding before so we are counting on audiences to back our experiment and gravitate towards the South Holland for some noble and electron-ic reactions! The show is suitable for all adults over 14 and tickets are £15, £13 concessions from our Box Office or website.
And remember, you really don’t have to be a nerd to enjoy this show… but it might help!
