What's the talk about?

Are aliens visiting us? And if they are, what’s the likelihood of them looking human? 

Stevyn Colgan has been involved with aliens for three decades. He’s held Jabba the Hutt’s face, helped sculpt creatures for Bruce Willis to shoot at, and had a script accepted for Doctor Who in the 1980s. In this entertaining talk, you’ll hear about feuding gangs of scientists, film directors with less imagination than children, and the perils of concrete poo.
 
Stevyn Colgan is an author, artist, songwriter, speaker and oddly-spelled Cornishman. He is one of the ‘Elves’ that research and write the popular BBC TV series ‘QI’ and co-writes its sister show, ‘The Museum of Curiosity’, for BBC Radio 4.
 
Stevyn's previous talk "The Skeptical Bobby" was one of the best recieved in our history, and we are delighted to welcome him back for this, our fifth anniversary meeting.
