What is Science Café?
Explore the latest ideas in science and technology in a relaxed, informal atmosphere, whilst quenching your thirst with the Tobacco Factory’s finest beverages. Meetings are free and open to anyone with an interest in science and technology, subjects which have a profound impact on all of our everyday lives.
The format is simple: The invited speaker gives a short introduction to the evening’s topic, we take a break for refreshments and pondering, followed by an hour of questions and discussion. Everyone is welcome to ask a question or make a comment, and this is a fantastic opportunity to debate and contemplate often-controversial issues with leading experts in their field.
Café topics cover a broad range of cutting-edge scientific research and ideas from different disciplines. Check the list of Science Cafe events for upcoming cafés.
You don’t need to be a scientist to enjoy the evening! Just come with an open and enquiring mind (and some spare change for a drink).
