BAHFest is a celebration of well-argued and thoroughly researched but completely incorrect scientific theory. Our brave speakers present their bad theories in front of a live audience and a panel of judges with real science credentials, who together determine who takes home the coveted BAHFest trophy.

And eternal glory, of course.

Submissions for BAHFest London Evolution and Big Science are now open!
