Science Slam

We are excited to bring our renowned Science Slam to Birmingham for BES2018!

Sunday 16 December
20:30 – late 

**Please note the 2018 Science Slam has now sold out! You can add your name to the waiting list below and will be contacted if any spaces become available.**

Fusing theatre and cutting edge research, the Science Slam brings scientists onto centre stage to showcase their passion for ecology in exciting and unconventional ways. In past years we’ve seen alien strippers, singing frogs, and chocolate cake caterpillars take to the stage – but what will be the next big thing?

This year the event will be held in Birmingham’s leading independent live music venue and canalside pub, The Flapper, conveniently situated a short walk from the conference centre! You can buy tickets now via Eventbrite, but buy now to avoid disappointment as tickets are limited!

We’re delighted to also announce comedian, Ivo Graham, will be performing and acting as our compere!

“With a gauche charm and crafty, self-aware wit Ivo has proved a hit on Live At The Apollo, Mock The Week, and Comedy Central At The Comedy Store. The youngest ever winner of the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny award for new acts at the Edinburgh Fringe, Ivo is a regular writer on Fighting Talk and The Last Leg, and has enjoyed sell-out show runs at Edinburgh and London’s Soho Theatre.”
