Event Information:

  • Tue

    Room 101

    8:00 pmZoom

    Just like the BBC television program*...

    What's your pet magic trick or performance hate? Can you get it consigned to Room 101? Come along and give it a go; bring your best persuasive argument with you!

    Members must justify why they want to put their chosen detestation in to room 101, the graveyard of rubbish tricks.

    * Some trivia for you: The BBC's Room 101 television show is a derivative of the BBC radio show of the same name. This in turn is based on the climax of George Orwell's novel 'Nineteen Eighty-Four' in which a torture room reputedly containing "the worst thing in the world" is introduced. The basement torture chamber is in the Ministry of Love, in which the Party attempts to subject a prisoner to his or her own worst nightmare, fear or phobia, with the objective of breaking down their resistance. George Orwell himself named it after a meeting room in Broadcasting House where he would sit through tedious meetings.

    "You asked me once, what was in Room 101. I told you that you knew the answer already. Everyone knows it. The thing that is in Room 101 is the worst thing in the world."
    — O'Brien, Part III, Chapter V
