Stand Up for Towel DayV2Stand Up for Towel Day

Towel Day is an annual celebration on the 25th of May, as a tribute to the late author Douglas Adams (1952-2001). On that day, fans around the universe carry a towel in his honour.

Stand Up for Towel Day is a stand up comedy gig on the evening of towel day, where Douglas Adams fans can bring their towels for a refreshing glass of Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster, and chill with other hoopy folk whilst watching a bunch of comedians perform stand up comedy sets written especially for the event.

Dead Talks

deadtalkv2.0What is the shelf life of an idea? Dead Talks is a lot like TED talks, but all the ideas are rubbish. Not just the TEDx ones about cat yoga.

Dead Talks celebrates the laughable and ludicrous ideas of the past. Discover why plague suits actually worked, how to store a substance that can dissolve anything and if electricity could be the essence of life.

Join us as we consider the notions that have fallen by the wayside of science, history and fringe thought. Because one day, your ideas might be there too.
