The hugely popular Ig Nobel awards make their triumphant return to Brunel University London for an evening of science that makes you laugh, then makes you think. Hosted by founder Marc Abrahams, the show features an array of distinguished academics talking about some of the best in improbable research.
Each speaker has just ten minutes to explain their research, with the audience actively encouraged to bring them to a close when their time is up.
Tickets will be available on the door for this event.
