Call for speakers for Ignite Bristol #7

We’re back. Dja miss us?

Bristol’s best evening of ideas returns to its now regular haunt; the Tobacco Factory Theatre, North Street, for the first Ignite not on a school night – Friday 1 June 2012.

Tickets for the last couple of events have gone really quickly. The best way to ensure you get your hands on a pair of tickets is to apply for early bird tickets – free with giving a talk. That’s right, we’re only after you for your stories.

Bristol, we need your ideas, your stories, your tales of daring-do (or don’t). We want your advice on matters legal, the world’s best cuisine, ways we can make the world better, ways you made yourself better. Come to our stage and enlighten our audience, quickly. You’ll be glad you did.

The deadline for submissions is Monday 24 April. We’ll be letting everyone know soon after and announcing the line up on Friday 4 May – the same day the first batch of tickets will be available. There will be a meet up for speakers in the week of 9 April – we’ll post details here, or ping us on Twitter for more info.

King George commits the twin sins of turning his back to the audience AND reading from the slides. Tut-tut.

The calendar fans and Royalists among you will have noticed the significance of the date; it’s the beginning of the Jubilee Weekend. We’d really like to get the weekend off with a topical talk – are you a fan of the Queen and the tradition she embodies? Perhaps you know why a Republic would make Britain greater? Perhaps you have no preferences either way, but you can explain the differences between states with monarchs at the top and those with elected presidents – with 20 slides to back you up. Drop us a line.

What better way to start a three day weekend of pomp and ceremony than with a dozen informed and amusing talks by wonderful, talented speakers, all washed down with great beer/wine/soft drinks?

All we need now, is you. Click Submit an idea to tell us yours…

    Hi! I know the deadline of the call for speakers is now over but I still want to ask are there spaces left? I am interested in talking about how sign language is cross over with dance, act and sing to give performance chances to people with disabilities.
    Please email me at
    Many Thanks!!
