Prepare to switch yourselves off and on again as Festival of the Spoken Nerd return to the Bloomsbury Theatre with another great new show this April.

This time stand-up mathematician Matt Parker, experiments guy Steve Mould and geek songstress Helen Arney will be delving deep inside the computer - and then attempting to put it back together afterwards.

Hold on to your bits for a comedy night that covers the whole ZX Spectrum from computers made of dominoes to the future of artificial intelligence plus special guests, interactive experiments and a few extra surprises.

Whether you're a Mac, a PC, or just a human being, don't miss another sellout night of science and silliness.

Festival of the Spoken Nerd is now more accessible! The final show of this run incorporates Stagetext, a live speech-to-text transcription on stage that gives deaf, deafened and hard of hearing people access to what the Spoken Nerds are saying on stage. Book "Stagetext" concession on 18th April for a discount ticket.
