After touring to 15,000 people across the UK in 2015, featuring on BBC2 QI and creating the first truly experimental comedy series for Radio 4, the Nerds are back with new show You Can’t Polish A Nerd this Autumn. Join stand-up mathematician Matt Parker, experiments maestro Steve Mould and geek songstress Helen Arney at a night full of electrifying live experiments, spectacular songs and mind-bending maths.

Shows are suitable for nerds and non-nerds aged 14+ unless otherwise stated, as they contain scenes of multiple recursion.

**** “Fantastic and funny… you don’t need to be a ‘nerd’ to enjoy this show” Broadway Baby
**** “Gleefully geeky… impossible to resist, whatever your level of scientific knowledge” Edinburgh Reporter
