NINE LESSONS AND CAROLS FOR GODLESS PEOPLE – A RATIONAL CELEBRATION FOR CHRISTMAS
SOLD OUT– The Bloomsbury Theatre, London 15th – 19th December
The return of 2008’s sold out show of science, song and some interpretative dance. Tickets, by the way, are selling fast, I think Fri and Sat are sold out already, so move quick if you want to come.
This is not an attack on religion, but a celebration of science and the rational world.
Last year saw Jarvis Cocker singing I Believe in Father Christmas with a 25 piece orchestra before Richard Dawkins took to the stage to talk of cobwebs followed by a Top of the Pops dance to Harry Nilsson’s Can’t Live if Living is Without You.
This year promises to be even more eclectic. Every night will see physicist and code breaker Simon Singh, Bad Science author Ben Goldacre, acclaimed singer songwriter Robyn Hitchcock, multi award winning comedians Josie Long and Richard Herring, Thick of It star Chris Addison, and the appearing every night.
Special guests will include pagan sock cat worshipper and the man who changed the face of the comic book, Alan Moore (16th), manmade climate change denier and legendary enthusiast Johnny Ball (there should be some interesting backstage arguments there) (15 -17th), Quirkologist and psychologist Richard Wiseman (15th and 19th), I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue Legend Barry Cryer with Ronnie Golden, one of the few singers to have a top ten science hit, John Otway, CERN scientist and former popstar, and many more.
