Julian Hughes is known internationally for his contributions to the philosophy and practice of dementia care and living well in old age.

He was until recently RICE Professor of Old Age Psychiatry at Bristol University, a Fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatrists and of the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh, and an NHS consultant for over 20 years in Newcastle, North Tyneside and Bath.

Having read Philosophy, Politics and Economics at Oxford prior to studying Medicine, Julian is a deep thinker on the many ethical dilemmas of dementia care and was Deputy Chair of the Nuffield Council on Bioethics.

He is a co-author of The Dementia Manifesto, published in February 2019. It explores how a values-based, person-centred and rights-based approach can be applied to every aspect of the experience of dementia. His other books include How We Think About Dementia (2014), Thinking Through Dementia (2011), Alzheimer’s and Other Dementias: The Facts (2011), Dementia: Mind, Meaning and the Person (2006) and Ethical Issues in Dementia Care (2006).

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!
