How much would you pay for a one pound coin? How deep is a well? How do you prove that no numbers are boring?  Is ‘no’ the answer to this question?  Singing maths entertainer Kyle D Evans will be putting down his guitar for a change and introducing you to some mathematical poetry, using some of his favourite paradoxes as a springboard.  Prepare for mind-bending maths with stacks of crowd participation, all presented in a clear and accessible manner for children and their parents.

Kyle is an award winning maths communicator (Famelab UK 2016) and musical comedian (Best Stand-up, Swindon Fringe 2018) with a passion for increasing the general public’s understanding and enjoyment of mathematics. He has performed musical/comedy maths shows for all ages at various events, such as Cheltenham & Manchester Science festivals, Blue Dot, Green Man, Camp Bestival, London Science Museum, Edinburgh Fringe and various other festivals. He regularly delivers talks to large crowds of teenagers at events such as Maths Inspiration and Maths in Action, and is a regular contributor to Radio 4’s flagship numbers show ‘More or Less’.
