A-Z LECTURES and CATEGORIES

Local Science Clubs and Societies

'A place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to have a conversation about the latest ideas in science and technology. Meetings have taken place in cafes, bars, restaurants, theatres, libraries and even out of doors, but always outside a traditional academic context ... Audiences are people who are interested in science. Anyone can participate; speakers are there to be questioned and talk about their work at all levels.'

'We aim to promote locally an interest in all branches of science, and to cater for the layman as well as for those with specialist knowledge.'

'We are a group with an interest in science who meet once a month for an informal discussion – with a drink – about a scientific or technical topic, led by an invited expert. Knutsford SciBar meetings are held on the second Monday of each month ... Usually there is no meeting in August. Time: 7.30pm – arrive early to get a drink and a good seat.'

LECTURES and TALKS2021 Programme

'Since its formation in 1985 the Society’s membership has grown to over 370, amateurs and professionals, of all ages and from all walks of life. It has held more than 200 lectures ... and has arranged more than 150 visits. The Society’s steady growth in membership, the growth of its reputation in the Lichfield area and beyond and the regular “full house” attendances make it the envy of many similar groups and a tribute to the many people who have served it ... The Society’s reputation is such that it can attract speakers respected in their professions from all over the UK and from abroad; surgeons, engineers, biologists, chemists, physicists, archaeologists, medical doctors, in fact anyone with an authoritative view on an interesting subject.'

'The Yorkshire Philosophical Society is a charitable learned society, founded in 1822 when “philosophical” had the same meaning as “scientific”. The Society’s primary aim is to promote public understanding and involvement in the academic disciplines of the natural and social sciences ... Our Lectures cover a wide range of subjects in the natural sciences, social sciences and archaeology, and take place in a friendly, welcoming environment with the opportunity to meet others with similar interests. Lectures are free and open to all.  Non-members are invited to make a donation to help cover costs.  Children are welcome provided they are accompanied by a responsible adult.'
