Nine Lessons and Carols for Godless People
10th-11th and 15th-22nd December at 7.30pm
A sell out every year since it started in 2008, the smash-hit rational Christmas celebration curated by Robin Ince returns for a sixth year of science-infected comedy, song and rationalist repartee.
"A unique mix of variety night and Royal Institution Christmas Lecture"
"If there’s one thing I can’t stand it’s the creeping commercialisation of secular Christmas shows"
Read Robin Ince's blog on why this will be the last year for this show: The Horror of Killing Your Babies... metaphorical babies obviously
