Join us after the Belz Lecture where we'll be entertained by Simon Pampena in his comedy show, The Probability Drive. We don't want to give anything away, but we're certain you'll have a good time – there will be laughs, door prizes, and some socialising following the show.

The Probability Drive

Life is just a chaotic series of events without purpose or meaning...unless you are a statistician. Then, everything makes sense. Simon Pampena is a stand-up mathematician who, like Steven Bradbury, knows the true power of a p-value.
