Hosted by comedian Mark Humphries, Night of the Nerds is the Festival’s very own, very nerdy- variety game show! Two all-star teams of scientists, tech heads and funny people will battle through a series of challenges in the ultimate nerd showdown.
The irrepressible Dr Karl, perched on the Throne of Knowledge, will keep everyone on their toes, while Clare Bowditch and the house superband keep things rocking along. Our terrific teams will face off to tackle the important questions: what is the 10th decimal place of Pi? Who was the best captain on the Starship Enterprise? And how long is a piece of string?
Prepare to embrace your inner nerd and geek out!
