An Evening of Weird Secrets


Thanks to everyone who came along last night.  We had many a weird secret imparted, including how to defend yourself with a handkerchief, how to breed hedgehogs, and how to create the perfect make-over.  We have also now fixed the sign outside The Counting House.  Lots of people have asked for links to our various star performers and here they are:

Our secret juggler, Alex Peddie, was from the Tollcross State Circus

Martial Artists Phil and Ian are instructors at the Black Boar Swordsmanship School

Vintage hair stylists Ariana and Emma help run the Miss DixieBelle retro chic boutique

Our make-up artist was the amazingly talented Jak Morgan

Origami artist and skeptic Richard Saunders was the man showing everyone how to make a paper fox (and is giving a talk at the Beehive tonight here)

The fearless hedgehogs wranglers were Laura and Rebecca from Edinburgh Hedgehogs

Performing the amazing LED diablo routine was Ewan Riley accompanied by the djembe playing Pawel, also from Tollcross State Circus.

Professional genealogist Marie Dougan gave a great talk about Pete’s link to one of the world’s greatest astronomers.

And mixing the perfect cocktail was Mikael Vejdemo Johansson (who, in his spare time, examines ‘efficient computation of invariants and structures in homological algebra’).

As ever, our thanks to Caroline, Paula and Gordon.  Hope you enjoyed the night and looking forward to seeing you all soon.
