Come and experience a loved-up evening of geeky romance with bible historian Professor Francesca Stavrakopoulou, comedian Robin Ince, and one other special ‘mystery’ guest as The Centre For Inquiry UK presents ‘Love Factually’.
A fun evening of learning all about love, hosted by CFI UK’s Stephen Law. Find out about God’s secret sex life, exactly what turtles get up to when the lights are out, and a whole lot more. There will be a licensed bar to provide lush libations, and opportunities to buy books by Law, Stavrakopoulou, and Ince, who will be more than happy to sign them for you.
Robin Ince is a well-known comedian and skeptic. He co-presents ‘The Infinite Monkey Cage’ on BBC Radio 4, and is author of ‘Robin Ince’s Bad Book Club’ and ‘Dead Funny’. Francesca Stavrakopoulou is Professor of the Hebrew Bible and Ancient Religion at Exeter’s Department of Theology and Religion. She presented the BBC TV series ‘The Bible’s Buried Secrets’ and contributed to Channel 4’s ‘The Bible: A History’. Stephen Law is philosopher, author of ‘Believing Bullshit’ and ‘The Philosophy Gym’, and head of CFI UK.
