How to Predict the Future

Using magic and humour, we’ll look at the pseudoscience of prophecy from Nostradamus to Paul the Psychic Octopus.

Since early man with his rattles and whistles first read the entrails of a rabid mule, people have thought it possible to see into the future.  You can predict certain things based on trends, but an all seeing third eye with aspirations of being the new Nostradamus is not a reality.  However, it is almost impossible to walk through a busy town centre without seeing adverts for tarot readers and psychics who can tell you what’s in your future- using my own prediction ability I see a loss of about £10 in the future of anyone deciding to engage with a bit of pub tarot.

So join us as we attempt to unravel the mysteries of predicting the future, from phrenology to crystal gazing- feeling your bumps and playing with balls if you will-  this show will use humour and audience participation to investigate prophecy.  Is there anything to it or is it all just bunk? (hint: it’s probably the latter.  Not that I’m psychic or anything).
