This event has passed

Presented by The Cosmic Shambles Network

For over a decade, Nine Lessons and Carols for Curious People has been an end of year tradition playing to sold out audiences in London. Now, for the first time, this annual celebration of the curious and the creative, this variety night like no other, will be combining ideas, experiments, science, songs, comedy, poetry and more in Salford. Hosted by Robin Ince (The Infinite Monkey Cage, Book Shambles) and supported by a huge bill of amazing guests on both nights, from comedians to chemists and singers to statisticians. Previous guests have included Brian Cox, Stewart Lee, Helen Czerski, Matt Parker and even Zippy! There’s no telling who might turn up…

Full lineups of guests for each night will be announced in due course at


‘The antidote to the ignorance and unkindness sweeping the world’


‘Long may it brighten our bleak midwinter with the light of reason and silliness’
