Catalyst Club Special Shoreham Wordfest

Now in it’s eleventh year, Brighton’s popular Catalyst Club is coming to Shoreham Wordfest. A celebration of the singular passions of everyday folk, it has, to date, hosted over 500 talks on subjects ranging from Vikings, naturalism, and gratitude, to the history of the Martini.

Tonight’s event, on the theme of change, introduces Brighton Science Festival curator Richard Robinson, who will invite the audience to explore the subject of puns and word play. ‘Cheeky Guides’ author and host, David Bramwell, shares his adventures in the ‘No.9 Bus To Utopia’, a year spent travelling around the world’s most extraordinary communities. As well as tales of singing plants, the world’s largest underground temple, anarchist communes, and a time machine, David also asks what we can learn from communities about how to improve our lives and cities in the 21st century.
