What is Skeptics in the Pub?

In 1999, Dr Scott Campbell founded Skeptics in the Pub. The group was created for those interested in science, history, psychology, philosophy, investigative journalism and how to examine extraordinary claims of all types. Initially only in London, there now be over 100 SitP groups around the world.

The Bristol meeting is presented by the Bristol Skeptics Society, formed in 2009. We meet on the fourth Wednesday of the month in the Smoke & Mirrors bar on Denmark Street.

A speaker is invited each month to present a topic of interest, which is followed by a discussion in a relaxed and friendly pub atmosphere. Previous speakers in Bristol include Simon Singh, David Colquhon, David Nutt and Susan Blackmore.

There are no tickets, just show up!
