Life, the Universe and Elderberries

August 12, 2019 @ 6:15 pm - 8:00 pm

Elderberries event poster

The universe is made of confusing things – some of which are very big and some of which are very small but, remarkably, everything can be explained via the contents of Einstein’s fruitbowl. Honest. How heavy is the internet? What does space smell like? Why do rainbows have a colour that doesn’t exist? Expect fantastic facts, titillating truths and extraordinary insights from former QI elf and award-winning comedy writer Stevyn Colgan.

About the speaker:

Author, speaker, artist. Ex-cop, ex-QI elf, occasionally X-Rated. Tea aficionado, collector of 3D Viewmasters and winner of several awards. Frequent flaneur.

Doors at 7.15, kickoff at 7.30
This is event is free to attend, although we will be asking for donations at the end of the talk. Participants are under no obligation whatsoever to donate, however please rest assured that the money we collect doesn’t end up in anyone’s pocket – it is used to fund our overhead costs, and travel/accommodation for our speakers who come from further afield.

Accessibility: As per the policy of the Admiral Bar, access to the venue “can only be provided to patrons who are sufficiently mobile and capable of independently evacuating premises, or with the minimum of assistance”. Unfortunately, this leaves the basement inaccessible to most wheelchair users.
