Speaking

Brian speaks at all sorts of things – Science Cabarets, Science and Museum Showoffs, Festival of the Spoken Nerd’s ‘An Evening of Unnecessary Detail‘, The Story Collider. He has a long history writing and performing science shows. He has won BIG‘s ‘Best Demo’ competition twice, and won joint 1st place at the Cheltenham Science Festival’s ‘Over-Ambitious Demo Challenge‘ in 2016.

Brian has appeared on the BBC podcast ‘The Boring Talks’, speaking about how pencils are really quite lovely.
