The Music Of Proof: What Does Maths Sound Like?
Wednesday 4 October 2017 7.30pm

RNCM Concert Hall

Is there maths hidden inside music? Is there music hidden in maths? This October, PRiSM, based at the RNCM is exploring the eternal connection and differences between the art of music and the science of maths. Listen to a new collection of miniatures for string quartet: five short movements each associated with a different mathematical idea. Play with a new app that will be launched during the evening inviting the audience to match the maths in musical fragments. Join composer Emily Howard and mathematician Marcus du Sautoy in a discussion about how maths and music are intertwined.

This is the launch event for PRiSM, the RNCM Centre for Practice & Research in Science & Music, with a series of events exploring collaborations between Music and Mathematics led by composer Emily Howard (Director, PRiSM) and mathematician Marcus du Sautoy (co-Director, PRiSM).

How to be Champion: An Evening with Sarah Millican
Friday 6 October 2017 7.30pm

RNCM Concert Hall

On Sale Monday 31 July 2017 from 10am

Manchester Literature Festival is delighted to launch this year’s Festival with a special in conversation with much-loved comedian, broadcaster and now author, Sarah Millican. Join us to hear Sarah chatting about her début book, How to be Champion, and sharing funny stories and proper advice on how to get past life’s blips – like being good at school but not good at friends, the excitement of IBS and how to blossom post-divorce. If you’ve ever worn glasses at the age of six, worn an off -the-shoulder gown with no confidence, been contacted by an old school bully, lived in your childhood bedroom in your 30s, been gloriously dumped in a Frankie and Benny’s, cried so much you felt great, been for a romantic walk with a dog, worn leggings two days in a row even though they smelt of wee from a distance, then this is YOUR BOOK. If you haven’t done those things but wish you had, THIS IS YOUR BOOK. If you just want to laugh on a train/sofa/toilet or under your desk at work, THIS IS YOUR BOOK.

This event will be chaired by poet and comedian Kate Fox.

Tickets £12 Ticket and a copy of How to be Champion £28

Due to the content of the event, it is recommended for people aged 16+ 

Pre-theatre dining is available before this event between 5pm and 7.30pm To reserve your table please call 0161 907 5353
