What are the connections between Analogue and Digital? In this Strange Bedfellows event, we hear from two speakers addressing all things analogue, and digital in the screen world. 
Strange Bedfellows pairs two speakers addressing completely unrelated subjects, followed by questions from the audience. During the first part of the program, the presenters share their specialised knowledge in a short and sharp 20-minute lecture. We get to listen and learn. But during the Q&A, anything can happen as you the audience seeks to find the connections.

Gather your friends, prepare to learn some weird and wonderful facts and compete to see if you can come up with the winning question. Prizes will be awarded to those with the best connections.
