'Café Psychologique is a space to talk about life over a drink from a psychological perspective. It builds on the philosophy of Café Scientifique to take ideas out of universities, laboratories and clinics to make them accessible to people in everyday life. Like Café Scientifique there are trained professionals to provide a resource to the café, but no lectures or seminars. Instead, ideas are dropped into the group to stimulate thought and discussion.'

'Our Centre began in 1964 as the African Studies Unit, and has grown from a small cataloguing enterprise to a research centre with an annual African Studies Lecture, a regular seminar programme and an annual African Studies Bulletin.'

'The Leeds Geological Association was formed in 1874 following a series of extra-mural lectures on Natural Sciences given by Cambridge University. The aim of the Association was to further the knowledge and experiences of geological matters by, wherever possible, study of the rocks and landscape of the local area. This very much remains the same today, although as knowledge of the subject has expanded, topics now range from the earth’s core to planetary bodies to climate change.'
