The University of Southampton
Public Engagement with Research

Bright Club

The Bright Club format - combining research and comedy to educate and entertain - originated at University College London. From UCL the idea has spread around the country, gaining publicity and momentum. Bright Club enables researchers to take their work to a wider audience, sharing their enthusiasm for their area of expertise within the guise of stand-up comedy.

After several successful years, Bright Club Southampton has taken a break in recent times due to staff changes, global pandemic and the like, but we hope it may one day return.

Meanwhile take a look through below to get a feel for what went on!

I had a fantastic time...I was telling a random stranger about it...THIS is happening in Southampton! My feeling is that there is a change happening in this city, from a place where everyone is doing their own things in their own places, to a real sense of a community being built. I love the way that you are contributing to this change through comedy.
