EXTERNAL EVENT - Stand-up for Darwin

Our friends as CLHG are putting on this exciting event - Stand Up for Darwin is fun fundraising evening of comedy and song dedicated to the great man Charles Darwin to celebrate his Birthday.

It is a Pan-London Humanists Groups Event in association with Conway Hall.

A host of great comedians many with a background in science will be entertaining you with laughter and logic, or perhaps the lack of it.
Entry is pay what you can we suggest a minimum of one Darwin (or £10 as some people know it) more if you can afford it or less if you really cannot.

PLEASE register your intention to attend, and simply pay on the door.

All money raised from the evening will go to a campaign to promote science, Evolution and Darwin's work in schools and to oppose the promotion of Creationism as an alternative 'theory' to Evolution.

The CLHG Wine Bar will provide drinks and nibbles, throughout the evening.

    Excellent. Far better than expected. Gemma Arrowsmith and Nick Doody were particularly funny.

      I don't know Gemma but Nick Doody is a dude. I remember a routine he used to do about phoning in sick with tourettes. Hilarious!
