Event description

Following their regular residency and two annual lectures in the Royal Institution theatre, Steve McNeil and Rob Sedgebeer from WiFi Wars return for a very special one-off festive spectacular where the whole audience will get to play on their World Record-breaking gaming technology!

Sam Pamphilon and Ellie Gibson, Steve’s co-hosts from the TV smash hit 'Dara O Briain’s Go 8 Bit', will also be along for the ride, as will the original cast of the live version of Go 8 Bit! Paul Foxcroft and Richard Soames will be on commentary duties, Will Hartley will return with a promotion as Punishment 'Scientist', and there are even rumours the mysterious Video Game Guy might be making a comeback...

There’ll probably be some other awesome secret guests and surprises too. We've definitely got the Festival of the Spoken Nerd Guys from BBC Radio 4 doing a bit though, and they're incredible.

All proceeds from ticket sales will be shared equally between the following charities: The Miscarriage Association, The Alzheimer’s Society and The Royal Institution.

The line-up subject to change without notice.
