The 1st Sydney BAHFest

BAHFest is a celebration of well-argued and thoroughly researched but completely incorrect scientific theory. Our brave speakers present their bad theories in front of a live audience and a panel of judges with real science credentials, who together determine who takes home the coveted BAHFest trophy. And eternal glory, of course.

The first ever BAHFest Sydney happened on Friday, August 19th 2016 at the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences. BAHFest will return to Sydney in 2017, more details coming soon!
