It's BrisScience's end-of-year spectacular! We're mixing things up and hosting an evening of science and comedy in the style of the great panel shows (think Spicks and Specks and QI), as we take a lighter look at the top science stories of 2022 - and some of the quirkier ones too!

Join us as world-leading researchers and gifted comedians battle wits and wittiness, exploring everything from uber-expensive space telescopes to the cubed output of wombats.

Hosted by well-known figure of stage and science (and BrisScience!) Dr Joel Gilmore, you'll be guaranteed a night of entertainment, competition, and comedy - and perhaps even education! So secure your tickets early and join us in December.
