Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas

The Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas is a unique opportunity for researchers to bring controversial, contentious, and dangerous ideas to the Edinburgh Fringe, and for members of the public to engage with world-class academics from all over the country. 

The shows, which, in many cases, are run by Sociology professors and students, attract a wide range of audiences and aim to provoke innovative discussions and challenge the way the wider public thinks about a topic.

In 2017, 74% of the 2438 audience members said they learnt something new, and 83% said they would recommend the Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas to a friend.
