The world is full of events and conferences that promise to change your life. Boring Talks won’t do that. It’s an evening celebrating the mundane, the ordinary, the obvious and the overlooked; subjects often considered trivial and pointless, but when examined more closely reveal themselves to be deeply fascinating.
Based on the annual sell-out Boring Conference, Boring Talks features a selection of speakers talking about obscure and arcane subjects, with a focus on the towns and cities in which we live; the habitats to which we have become habituated.
Fasten your green belts and join authors James Ward (Adventures in Stationery) and John Grindrod (Concretopia) among others for a journey through the outskirts of urbanism, as the British Library looks at model villages, suburbia and the mundanity of city life.
Nothing of any importance will be discussed. The event is a waste of time and money. There are lots of other things you could be doing instead.
If you want to be bored silly, then head to the British Library on Thurs 30th November at 7pm.
Tickets cost £12 and can be booked here.
