Festival of the Spoken Nerd: You Can’t Polish A Nerd

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2017.

Nerd, nerd, nerd; nerd is the word. Festival favourites Festival of the spoken nerd are back with a new show that puts the ‘ooh’ into zoology, the ‘fun’ into fundamental theorem and the ‘recursion’ into recursion…Mixing up a veritable Periodic Table of science, songs and spreadsheets, they’ll tickle your ribs and light your Bunsen burner. Come and see the show the Guardian said had “charm and perky curiosity in its DNA,” and Scotsman called “great, funny and clever… even the heckles at this terrific show are smart.” Full-frontal nerdity guaranteed.
