Helen Arney news
January 2012

Happy two thousand and twelve! I hope you all had Awkward Christmases and Merry New Years? I'll keep this newsbot brief, there's only 3 things to tell you about anyway...  
Tickets for the biggest show I've ever hosted have just gone on sale: Festival of the Spoken Nerd at the Theatre Royal Haymarket on Thursday 2nd February. Yes. Theatre Royal. Yes. Woah.
£10 stalls seats are selling fast, at festivalofthespokennerd.com
We did the show two nights ago in front of a sold-out crowd at the Bloomsbury Theatre, and it was a blast. There's a lovely review already up on Londonist.com, with lovely pictures. The 2nd Feb show is another chance to see me, Matt Parker and Steve Mould (plus special guests) doing the same show again. Do come and see it if you can, it's our biggest, best and most dangerous Festival of the Spoken Nerd ever, and now it's in a huge, legendary West End Theatre. Zowie!

And at the opposite end of the scale, I'm back at the 40-seater Green Man near Oxford Circus once a month for the geekiest new material night in London. Domestic Science is where me, Rob Wells, and half a dozen other science/comedy/music types will try out new and possibly even funny stuff for our shows at the Edinburgh Fringe and beyond.
The first one is next Tuesday, 24th January
Tickets are £4 from We Got Tickets - there are only 40 seats in the room, get in quick because once it's sold out, it's truly sold out.

Enjoy a spiffing start to this Olympiad of a year. Send me your news too, please?
PS I have no idea why there is a huge blue-green space at the bottom of this email. I can't get rid of it! Please send this back to me with a lovely underwater scene drawn onto it - I will send free downloads of all my music to my favourite one. I really will! Come on, let's make something positive and nice out of this battle with technology that I have lost today.
