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.

After touring to 15,000 people across the UK in 2015, featuring on BBC2 QI, creating the first truly experimental comedy series for Radio 4 and writing their first book, the Nerds are back the final dates of their new show, You Can’t Polish A Nerd. Can’t make it to a show? Don’t worry, we’re recording it for DVD and download (and possibly LaserDisc). Pre-order it here to get your copy in time for Christmas!

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
