Nine Lessons and Carols for Godless People is a sell out – but a new date will be announced soon

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly): rationalist.org.uk

The big news today is that all tickets for the return of Nine Lessons and Carols for Godless People, our Christmas collaboration with Robin Ince at London's Bloomsbury Theatre, have now been sold. They were for 15-19 December, with stars including Richard Dawkins, Richard Herring, Chris Addison, Simon Singh, Ben Goldacre, John Otway, Barry Cryer, Johnny Ball, Robyn Hitchcock, Josie Long, Andrew Collins and many more.

But if you didn't manage to get tickets, don't despair. We'll soon be announcing an additional show at a major London venue, featuring some of the above and some surprise guests.

Watch this space (plus Twitter, Facebook, our newsletter... just watch various New Humanist-shaped spaces, okay?)

Hi there,
I'm coming to your show in December in London (yay!), but wondering if it's ok to bring my son (almost 9) along. He is raised atheist/ agnostic, but not 100% sure content may be totally appropriate...
Please advise!
Thank you.

Hi Asti

well I cannot be sure about the appropriateness of the content. As far as I know there is no age limit, and most of the comics are not the kind of in your face x-rated sort- and nor are the scientists- but I would be surprised if there was not some swearing and mild sexual innuendo. It is not really designed for kids, though I think one of his age would find lots to enjoy. However we- ie Robin Ince and the RA - are not entirely in control of what the acts will say, and for example last year Ricky Gervais told some very age inappropriate gags. Sorry not to be more definite - I guess its up to you...

See you there

Thank you Caspar! I'll bear that in mind. Either way, I'll be sure to enjoy it. :-)

Perhaps a children's version for the future performances might be worth looking into - I'm sure you'll have tons of parents like me who tire of the usual christmas related stuff for kids, and would love something like this aimed at the sprogs.

Thanks again.

Best regards,
Asti
