See Robin Ince's School for Gifted Children on Tour this autumn

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

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly):

Many of you, quite rightly, have asked if we'll be taking our Nine Lessons and Carols for Godless People shows outside of London this year – the answer is not this year, although it is something we're considering for the future.

However, we do have the next best thing or, more accurately, something just as good – we've teamed up with Robin again as media partners for a tour of his School for Gifted Children comedy and science shows, which is what Nine Lessons and Carols started from in the first place. The show is travelling to six venues around England through October, November and December, so those of you unable to make it to London for Nine Lessons may like to consider getting hold of some tickets.

It's hosted by Robin, with Josie Long, Simon Singh and Gavin Osborn appearing at all the dates. There'll be various special guests too, including Ben Goldacre and Richard Wiseman. Here's a list of the dates, along with links to the venues which you can follow to buy tickets:

23 October: Cambridge Junction
25 October: Bath Komedia
29 October: Brighton Komedia
7 November: Folkestone Literary Festival
19 November: Norwich Arts Centre
9 December: Lowry, Salford

And if you're still hoping to see Nine Lessons in London, watch out for our announcement of an additional date at a major venue in the coming days.
