Shakespeare On Fire!

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

To the mark the 400th anniversary of the first Globe Theatre burning down, sci-comedy trio Festival of the Spoken Nerd return to Shakespeare's Globe for one night only with a flame-fuelled fantasia.

Taking as their inspiration the story of the first Globe's fateful encounter between a canon spark and fifteenth-century thatch, stand-up mathematician Matt Parker (Things You Need To Know, BBC2), experiments-guy Steve Mould (Britain's Brightest Street Scientist, BBC1) and geek songstress Helen Arney (Infinite Monkey Cage, BBC Radio 4) unleash their hottest experiments, featuring: flame tube fluteboxing, fire tornado, the Sun Song and how not to burn down a wooden theatre (hopefully).
