Let's go to the Festival of Science: Matt Parker, The Number Ninja

*** I've just booked my ticket but tickets are selling fast so if you want to join us, I'd recommend you get your ticket asap***

Let's meet in the foyer between 7 and 7.20. There are some comfy chairs and I'll stick the 'thinquer' sign on one of the tables. My number is 07809-144069.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

'Direct from BBC Radio 4’s Infinite Monkey Cage with Brian Cox and Robin Ince, with research featured on QI, Leeds will be welcoming stand-up Maths comedian Matt Parker. Expect everything from debunking number nonsense and flagrant sudoku abuse to the mysterious patterns in the locations of ancient monuments and defunct Woolworths stores.'

Tickets £6, suitable for ages 16 plus. Entry to the show is strictly by ticket only.

Book early as places are limited. For more information and details of other Festival of Science events, visit http://www.leeds.ac.uk/festivalofscience/public.html

    Entertaining. I had forgotten all about Graham's number so it was good to be reminded of it.

    On reflection, I was just being oxymoronic. Now I am being pedantic. I think I'll shut up and get on with work...

    I bought my tickets 4 days ago and not arrived yet but I guess its just a matter of patience

      Your email confirmation of purchase is your ticket. So assuming you've got that, you should be fine.
