Robin Ince - spring 2017 photo Timothy Ginn

The star of The Infinite Monkey Cage returns brings his first new solo show for three years to Lyme Regis. Expect a hilarious night-out about love, death and art – with a teeny bit of physics. Fizzing with ideas about creativity in science and art, as well as asking why we believe we see, what we see, and why we believe, what we believe.

In 2017 Robin completed a 70 date, record breaking tour with Brian Cox that concluded at the Wembley Arena. The Infinite Monkey Cage remains one of the most popular programmes on BBC Radio 4.

Robin’s new book, I’m a Joke…and So Are You is published in October 2018

Robin is the winner of a Sony Gold and Rose d’Or for the Infinite Monkey Cage and the Time Out Outstanding Contribution to Comedy, as well as The Francis Crick Science Journalism Award and 3 Chortle awards.

TALK: Underwater Sound in Blue Planet II | Thursday 3 May

A talk by a sound recording expert from Blue Planet II with audio and visual clips, followed by audience questions.

701_RogerMunns_P10001490 (1) copy

Intrepid Explorers, an organisation which shares stories of field research, is bringing Blue Planet II to Dorset through a special talk at the Marine in Lyme Regis. Professor Steve Simpson will share his experience as Series Academic Advisor for the acclaimed series and other David Attenborough documentaries, such as his Great Barrier Reef programme in 2015.

Much of Professor Simpson’s work focuses on underwater acoustics, including the use of sound by fish and invertebrates, and impacts of human noise on marine life.  The ocean is a remarkably noisy place, with whales, dolphins, fish, and invertebrates all producing sound to communicate. These sounds range from the haunting song of the humpback whale song to the explosive clicks of snapping shrimp, and are important for social interactions and predator avoidance. In this talk, Steve will explain how he has pioneered new ways of listening to the ocean and of interacting with fish to understand soundscapes and to unlock the language of fish. His work on underwater noise pollution recently screened in Blue Planet II.

MUSIC: Tankus the Henge | Friday 4 May

This is an upbeat festival band that thrills audiences at all of Europe’s biggest shindigs, including Glastonbury, WOMAD, and Montreux Jazz Festival.

AvalonJump-Website
Most people remember Tankus the Henge for its wild showmanship; frontman Jaz Delorean occupies the stage with jagger-esque aplomb, leaping from on top of a smoking piano and launching into the audience like an athlete, whenever the moment takes him.


One of the band’s great strengths is its musical agility, that allows Tankus the Henge to incorporate a vast range of genres. Rock, funk, blues, ska, and gypsy music are all there, always underpinned by an infectious energy that contrasts with lyrics that tell stories of wonder and woe.

 

Since the release of a first album, the band has toured extensively across Europe, playing at the London Olympics, and was even named by Metro as one of its “Top 10 Acts To See” at Glastonbury Festival.

Support comes from Rivermouth; he’s the lead singer of Cavemouth, the swamp-blues outfit that has featured on BBc 6music’s Introducing and played at events such as HowTheLightGetsIn.

 

“It reminds me of a mixture of early Kinks, Squeeze and a bit of Blur mashed in… I love it.” Dave Davies, The Kinks
“a virtual carnival of sound that’s high on energy and deep on soul….an exciting mélange.” The Guardian
