The Story Collider

This is a past event from Manchester Science Festival 2016. 

Enjoy an evening of true, personal stories with a science twist. Five storytellers plucked from the Festival line-up share their exciting tales of how science has touched their lives. Some stories are heartbreaking, some are hilarious, but they’re all true – and, in one way or another, they’re all about science.

Hosted by Sam Illingworth

Stories by Simon WheatcroftAravind VijayaraghavanCharlie Hooson-Sykes and Russel Garwood
