Sign Up, Sign Up! Eight-Minute Acts Wanted!
Got an 8-minute act of fabulous physics-y fun? Fantastic. Fill out the form below and we'll get in touch.
It's going to be a fabulous night. A few things you need to know:
- your act should be no longer than 8 minutes — we'll be ringing a bell and using the stage hook if necessary
- your act should be entertaining — interesting, funny, engaging, interactive, or all of these things at once — to a lay audience of pub-going adults
- you can give a talk, sing a song, do a demo, juggle, dance, tell jokes, anything — as long as it's broadly related to physics
- you can use rude words and ideas (bottom quark!), but please stay within the general boundaries of pub-centric decorum. In other words: this is an event for grown-ups, but it's not intended to be a foul-mouthed tirade or drunken brawl
