A sell-out event dedicated to all things boring has Josie Long and Robin Ince signed up as speakers.
The Boring Conference sees speakers talk on topics from electric hairdryers to the first ten years of consumer magazine Which?
Pappy's member Matthew Crosby is also giving a talk, although he tweeted on Monday that he had not yet picked a topic.
Other delegates include science journalist Ben Goldacre, musician and writer Rhodri Marsden, and documentary filmmakers Jon Ronson and Adam Curtis.
The event, held Saturday 19th November at York Hall in Bethnal Green, has become increasingly popular since it was developed in response to an Interesting Conference held last year, which was dedicated to surprisingly fascinating topics.
Interestingly, the Boring Conference website contains no details about the attendees or their topics of discussion to attract punters.
The site's Twitter feed is currently reporting the event is sold out, but if you can't get a ticket, here's a nice music video of Josie Long touching people in the park.
