Conway Hall & Little Atoms present...
The World's Most Improbable Event
with the Father of the IgNobel Prizes, Marc Abrahams
Expect a gaggle of excited scientists, journalists, researchers, along with a few other improbably interesting folk talk about research on; why books on ethics are more likely to get stolen, what time of month generates higher tips for Las Vegas lap dancers, stories of how mice were outfitted with parachutes to find a better way to murder tree snakes in Guam, and Other WTF Research.
Chloe Kembery: @chkchk Natural Historian
and more who will probably just turn up on the day.
Marc Abrahams is the editor of the parody magazine Annals of Improbable Research and the founder of the Ig Nobel Prizes, which honour bizarre, questionable, and downright funny scientific research and are presented at an annual ceremony at Harvard University. Abrahams and the Ig Nobel have been widely covered, including by the Guardian, the New York Times, New Scientist, Scientific American, and newspapers and TV programmes internationally. The author of The Ig Nobel Prizes, published in 2002, Abrahams writes a weekly column for the Guardian. He lives in Massachusetts.
Conway Hall is the landmark of London's independent intellectual, political and cultural life.
Conway Hall is owned by Conway Hall Ethical Society, which was first opened in 1929. The name was chosen in honour of Moncure Daniel Conway (1832 - 1907), anti-slavery advocate, out-spoken supporter of free thought and biographer of Thomas Paine.
Conway Hall now hosts a wide variety of lectures, classical music, classes, performances, community and social events. It is renowned as a hub for free speech and independent thought.
Founded in the 1880s, our chamber music concert series (now Conway Hall Sunday Concerts) - are the longest-running of their kind in Europe. The ethos of "affordable classical music for all" still remains.
Conway Hall reserves the right to change the programme and personnel of its events without notice in the event of unforeseen circumstances.
