The Story Collider: True Stories about Science

Date:Tue 19 Feb
Time:7.30pm
Venue:J3
Price:£8 (£6 con)

Whether we wear a lab coat or haven't seen a test tube since school, science is shaping all of our lives. And that means we all have science stories to tell.

The Story Collider is an international story-telling show, started in New York, with a mission to tell these hidden stories. Featuring researchers, doctors, engineers, patients, poets, and parents; some stories are heart-breaking, others are hilarious, but they're all true and all very personal.  We’ll have some first-time tellers as well as some established talent tread the boards to share their stories.

Join us for the Story Collider’s return to Cambridge for a night of science stories, held in partnership with Wellcome Genome Campus Public Engagement.

"When the stories began, the tones balanced stand‐up funny and powerfully confessional... The crowd's reactions veered from belly laughs to pin‐drop silence."
Andy Beta, The Wall Street Journal
