In partnership with DRAKE the Bookshop, author, comedian and podcaster Robin Ince joins us for an entertaining and science-filled evening. He will be discussing his new, erudite and witty book, The Importance of Being Interested.

Robin Ince quickly abandoned science at school, bored by a fog of dull lessons and intimidated by the barrage of equations. But, twenty years later, he fell in love and he now presents one of the world’s most popular science podcasts, The Infinite Monkey Cage with Professor Brian Cox. Every year he meets hundreds of the world’s greatest thinkers. In his book, Robin reveals why scientific wonder isn’t just for the professionals. He explores why many think of the discipline as distant and difficult. From the glorious appeal of the stars above to why scientific curiosity can encourage much needed intellectual humility, this optimistic and profound book will leave you filled with a thirst for intellectual adventure.

Robin will be doing a Q&A and signing copies of his new book afterwards.
