Science Festival Training Dates!

If you follow us on facebook you'll have been made constantly aware that we've got four shows coming up as part of the Edinburgh Science Festival. We need a whole tonne of acts to fill all the slots so we simply will not stop banging on about it until people sign up!

If you're of a (vaguely) sciencey mindset and have often thought "maybe I should try doing Bright Club, it looks like fun (also that Pete guy who talks about stress is super funny)" then this is your moment! Change that thought to "I'm going to sign up for the training session on the 20th of March (also that Pete guy who talks about stress is super funny)"

You can sign up here:

This is the first of two sessions that will tell you all you need to know about doing academic stand up. If you sign up, it's only a matter of time until you're on Mock the Week.
