Following the success of 2018’s hugely popular Space Shambles, The Cosmic Shambles Network is to return to The Royal Albert Hall in 2020 with a brand new sea themed spectacular which is destined to be their biggest show ever. 

On May 17, 2020 The Cosmic Shambles Network and the Royal Albert Hall will take you on a celebratory voyage of discovery of our own blue planet and how we are best placed to protect it, with a spectacular new show, Sea Shambles. Anchored by co-host of the Rose D’Or winning The Infinite Monkey Cage (R4), Robin Ince, physicist and oceanographer Dr Helen Czerski, naturalist and wildlife presenter Steve Backshall and many very special guests (including famed rock band British Sea Power, award-winning comedian Josie Long and poet Lemn Sissay MBE with many more to be announced).
