Comedy Talks at Bishopsgate Institute
This comedy cabaret will take you back in time as we revisit the weird and wonderful lectures given in our ‘handsome and commodious’ Great Hall (1897-1947), from the delightful ‘Romance and Reality at Sea’ to the intellectually intriguing ‘Wild animals I have known’. You’ll hear seven experts in their fields enlighten you on diverse topics from the worlds of history, politics, sociology and pop culture as they pull apart these lectures of old. Be sure that each speaker will ‘throw a vivid light on unaccustomed facts’.

Join our host, cabaret veteran Steve Cross (Science Showoff) for an evening of enlightening entertainment.



Performers: Akin Omobitan
Angus Dunican
Sarah Jones
