Portsmouth Skeptics in the Pub! We are a friendly, informal group, and we meet to enjoy talks on science, pseudo-science, philosophy, religion, and more, and to chat about these subjects over a drink.
We usually meet on the second Thursday of each month, at the Florence Arms, Southsea. Meetings are free, but we do appreciate a small donation to cover speakers’ expenses.
What can you expect at our events? Interesting talks, lively debate, a chance to hang with people who have a rational outlook, and people willing to listen to you and answer your questions. The general format we follow is a talk from our guest speaker (usually lasting around 45 minutes), a 15 minute break to get a drink, and then a Q&A session for as long as the speaker can provide us. Afterwards, there's plenty of time to mingle and - as it takes place in a pub - grab a few drinks too.
