Peculiar 2020

Peculiar 2020
 
  4:00 pm - 9:00 pm

'Peculiar' is a celebration of offbeat, humourous, and otherwise peculiar scientific research - both totally real and purely hypothetical.

Peculiar is hosted by the Royal College of Science Union, with support from Imperial College's Faculty of Natural Sciences, and features:

Ig Nobel Awards Tour Show: Now in its 15th year at Imperial, this is a show that seeks to make you laugh, then make you think. The show is hosted by Ig Nobel founder Marc Abrahams, who will be joined on stage by Ig Nobel winners Silvano Gallus (evidence that pizza might protect against illness and death, if the pizza is made and eaten in Italy), Francis McGlone (the pleasurability of scratching an itch), and Minna Lyons (a new study: Referee Height Influences Decision Making in British Football Leagues.

BAHFest: The Festival of Bad Ad hoc Hypotheses is making a 5th appearance at Imperial. BAHFest is a celebration of well-argued and thoroughly researched but completely incorrect scientific theory. Our brave speakers present their bad theories in front of a live audience and a panel of judges with real science credentials, who together determine who takes home the coveted BAHFest trophy. And eternal glory, of course. For clips from past shows, and bios of this year's judges, check out bahfest.com/london2020/.

Cost: £28
