Ever wanted to entertain your friends and family with amazing science stunts? Professor Richard Wiseman has travelled the world in search of the extraordinary. His Bets You Always Win videos have had over 150 million views on YouTube, and now you can experience the magic live. Discover how to….

  • ….balance a coin on the edge of a bank note
  • ….turn a tea towel into a chicken
  • ….defy gravity
  • ….hypnotise anyone in seconds

and much, much more.

Richard will also be explaining the science behind the stunts and showing some amazing optical illusions.


About the speaker

Professor Wiseman began his career as a cabin boy on a pirate ship where he was known as Tricky Dicky because of his magic tricks involving dubloons and a parrot*. When the parrot died in an incident he still refuses to speak about, he came ashore and became a con man; for years he posed as a successful Professor of the Public Understanding of Psychology at the University of Hertfordshire. He claims to have written some books but we suspect the parrot actually wrote them.

He is currently on Interpol’s Most Wanted list for crimes against humanity and can be identified by a tattoo of One Direction on his right thigh. Approach with extreme caution.

*some of this may not be true


This is event is free to attend, although we will be asking for donations at the end of the talk. Participants are under no obligation whatsoever to donate, however please rest assured that the money we collect doesn't end up in anyone's pocket - it is used to fund our overhead costs, and travel/accommodation for our speakers who come from further afield.


Accessibility: As per the policy of the Admiral Bar, access to the venue “can only be provided to patrons who are sufficiently mobile and capable of independently evacuating premises, or with the minimum of assistance”. Unfortunately, this leaves the basement inaccessible to most wheelchair users.
