How do you get your lightbulb moments? In the bath, or chatting with colleagues? Do you think Newton planned to sit by that apple tree? Something we’ve all been missing over lockdown are those chance encounters in the café or on the stairs with friends and colleagues where some of the most important beginnings of ideas start. Come and share your thoughts on how ideas come into being.

Welcome to Talkaoke – a pop up talk show where anyone can sit down and air their views around the virtual table of chat. The People Speak have been running Talkaoke events from street corners to theatres, galleries, conferences, festivals all around the world, and now they are venturing online! The Talkaoke conversation is a journey from one unexpected subject to another. It can be topical, funny, deep, out-there, or all of the above. It is a great chance to hear the latest ideas that people are talking about and to generate and discover new ones.

This series is a collaboration between The People Speak, Cambridge Festival and Wellcome Genome Campus. Join experts and other curious people, for a fun filled, often surprising, conversational adventure!
