The groundbreaking variety night that celebrates the curious and the creative returns for its eleventh instalment with a very special 2020 pandemic edition. Science, comedy, music, art, poetry, experiments and more come together in a joyous collision of chaos.

Hosted for all 24 hours by Robin Ince Nine Lessons and Carols for Curious People is Robin Ince’s ground-breaking creation, the original variety night mashing up science, comedy, music and more.

Born 15 years ago, this much-loved end of year tradition plays annually to sold out live audiences but in 2020 COVID-19 has raised its ugly pandemic head. And so with the live shows unable to go ahead in their usual form, the team behind the shows at The Cosmic Shambles Network were determined to come up with a marvellously unique alternative… We’ve decided to cram every little bit of creativity and curiosity from all those cancelled events into one phenomenal 24 hour + live show!

Robin Ince will be there to host this blockbuster of a show for the full 24 hours with guests including Brian Cox, Helen Czerski, Chris Hadfield, Helen Sharman, Rusty Schweickart, Stewart Lee, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Samantha Cristoforetti, Jimmy Barnes, Chris Jackson, Tanita Tikaram, Eddie Izzard and LOADS more!! And don’t worry, it’ll still probably overrun…

Whilst the livestream will be free to watch we will be encouraging donations to cover the costs of the production and all profits will be split between our chosen charities this year, Doctors Without Borders, Turn2Us, Mind: For Better Mental Health and the Kings Place Music Trust.
