You can also hear Series 2 of Domestic Science from Wednesday 21st February, live at 11pm on BBC Radio 4 or on iPlayer afterwards.

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. More 2018 dates on sale soon, join our mailing list below to get the details first.

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