Two news shows!


PhrenologyThe Secret Society are going to stage two original pieces of strange and informative entertainment.

On the 15th July Richard will be presenting previews of his new Fringe show,  EXPERIMENTAL.
EXPERIMENTAL is a show like no other, because it doesn’t have a performer! Instead, you’re taken through a series of psychological experiments designed to make you laugh, gasp and scream.  Come along  and be the first to experience this new form of immersive show that plays with your mind.  The show will run for about 45 mins, and there will be a chance to chat with Richard about it afterwards.  These performances will be filmed.
There will be 2 performances at 7.00 and 8.30.

On 16th July, Pete will be presenting a  preview of his new show, THINKING OUTSIDE THE BRAIN.
THINKING OUTSIDE THE BRAIN is also a show like no other, but it DOES  have a performer! That’s not the original bit. The original bit is that you actually get to think outside your brain. If you feel trapped  inside your head, if you’d like to get out of your head, you can!  Discover how to think outside the brain, and re-define the way you think. The show will run for about 55 mins.
There will be 2 performances at 7.00 and 8.30.

Both shows will take place at a secret location in the centre of Edinburgh, and we will email you details of the venue after you have booked a ticket.

Because we love you so much, and as a way of thanking everyone for being so supportive over the past few years, we are not going to charge for these events.  Instead, we will charge £5 and a ticket and when you arrive you will get your £5 back.

However, there are a VERY limited number of places, so if you want to come along, please grab a ticket when they became available on this site at 10am on Friday 11th July.  However, do be quick on Friday because our last event sold out in an amazing 3 minutes.

    I don’t understand how to get the tickets as it is 10 am already and I don’t see anything different on the site

  5. Heather Says:

  6. Catherine Monelle Says:

    6 minutes past ten and still no sign of ticket sales. Am I and my frantic clicking part of the experiment?

    I think this is one of RW’s experiements – how long with will folk wait for a page update lol

  13. Norman Lamont Says:

    Paranoia sets in – as Catherine says we might be part of the experiment.

  14. Grant Says:

    Posts here are tagging as 09:04 and 09:05 – my bet is that the ticket button will automatically appear, but the page doesn’t think it’s 10am yet…

    “EXPERIMENTAL EXPERIMENTAL is a show like no other, because it doesn’t have a performer”

    It may not have an audience either…. 😀

  16. Kellie Says:

    I cannot see how to buy tickets for the event??? Any ideas???

  17. Norman Lamont Says:

    Good spot.

    I’ve got to go out to the doctors very soon, will be quite pissed off if I miss out on tickets because the website’s not on BST!

  23. Kellie Says:

    I’m very disappointed! 😦

  24. Anonymous Says:

    Argh! Gonna miss out, have to get back to work 😦

    Something funny is happening to the comments… they disappear!

    Interesting to see how easy it is to be paranoid! I think Grant’s post above looks the most likely.

  27. Anonymous Says:

    Richard, adjust the clock!

  28. Anonymous Says:

    Perhaps it’s been set to release the page at 10am except the sever is running GMT not BST. Invisible fiver says the tickets appear at 11 or when someone notices there haven’t been any sales

  29. Liz Says:

    Academics are on strike today. Maybe he is too!

  30. Forrester Says:

    Reckon it might just be 10:00 GMT rather than BST… that or we are part of the experiment

  31. Forrester Says:

    Richard Wiseman cannot make custard

  32. Anonymous Says:

    I think this is because of the word ‘secret’ and the image used GCHQ and NSA are working their little b*** off trying to find a stenographic image or sinister link in the posts.

    On second thoughts maybe the site has been hi-jacked to harvest addresses

    Join NO2ID or EFF or both.

  40. Kirstin Says:

    This would NEVER have happened in Independent Scotland – our clocks would keep the right time…

  42. K S Says:

    Fascinating stuff.

  43. Forrester Says:

  45. Grant Says:

    While we wait

  46. Caroline Says:

  47. doc brown (@musicpiracyblog) Says:

    Sure hope these tickets land at 11; found myself listening to Limp Bizkit somehow.

  48. ayeball Says:

  55. Anonymous Says:

    Howdy, There’s no doubt that your blog could be having web browser compatibility
    problems. When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet
    Explorer, it’s got some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Aside from that, fantastic blog!
