     Really enjoyed my first visit to the Nottingham branch!

     If their interests cover a wide range of scientific and cultural issues, in an appropriately discursive way, then they are likely to find the Cafe Scientifique as rewarding as I do. We are experimenting with different structures for the meetings, and new blood may help us improve the format. The organizers do an excellent job, but they need all the help they can get. We are told that ours is the only Cafe Scientifique that meets every week. Long may it continue.

     Good discussion and free beer (courtesy of those Bok Group members who keep winning the Pub Quiz) makes for a great night out!

     Enjoyed the meeting and always come away intending to come to more sessions. Chatted to a few people tonight, so it was a good social evening as well as being an interesting talk.

  • Nottingham Culture & Café Scientifique

     Just when I think I've learnt what topics will attract a crowd- great to see so many first time attenders. 

    Moby F. on Feb 1, 2013.

    Nikki D. on Dec 22, 2012.

  • Nottingham Culture & Café Scientifique

     Great 

    Hugh W. on Nov 14, 2012.

  • Nottingham Culture & Café Scientifique

     If I may make a suggestion, perhaps the organisers could encourage the presenters to make their slides available on the Interweb, at least for a period of time, after the event. This would make it easy for people to follow up the talk with further research. We are lucky to live in very connected times, and should take advantage of the facilities we have to make it easy to use the information presented to us. 

    Ash C. on Nov 6, 2012.

  • Nottingham Culture & Café Scientifique

     I think that there are better venues where the event would be much more comfortable but perhaps the beer less good that Lord Roberts. 

    Tom A. on Oct 16, 2012.

  • Nottingham Culture & Café Scientifique

     Very friendly when I found who they were. I asked at reception about the meetup group meeting there and they knew nothing about it.

    chris f. on Apr 17, 2012.

  • Nottingham Culture & Café Scientifique

     It's a friendly and thought provoking group 

    Neil D. on Mar 7, 2012.

  • Nottingham Culture & Café Scientifique

     Listening to someone talking is not conduceive to talking ourselves as it would have been very rude. The ten or so minutes that could have been spent talking and meeting new people were sadly not taken as the people sitting at the tables had already formed groups and were talking amongst themselves. 

    Chris H. on Mar 6, 2012.

  • Nottingham Culture & Café Scientifique

     (This particular subgroup): Warmly Welcoming, friendly people, with like minded interests.. 

    Julie on Mar 5, 2012.

     Because its a great idea that runs smoothly and brings nice entertainment. 

    beatriz m. on Oct 13, 2011.

  • Nottingham Culture & Café Scientifique

     Friendly bunch. Only criticism was that I and 5 other people having never been before did not know where to meet or anybody familiar. All worked out well in the end though but a bit more info about exactly where to meet would be helpful. 

    ELIZABETH M. on Sep 25, 2011.

  • Nottingham Culture & Café Scientifique

     nice and approachable group 

    lucy on Sep 8, 2011.

     Thanks for this 'Big Society' initiative. Sorry if this label offends! 

    Jonathan S. on Jul 13, 2011.

  • Nottingham Culture & Café Scientifique

     Sometimes you here about things that you assume would be of no interest to you, and discover they have a relevance to you. 

    Catherine S. on Jun 7, 2011.

  • Nottingham Culture & Café Scientifique

     Everyone was very friendly and welcoming, thank you.

  • Nottingham Culture & Café Scientifique

     Good brains there, good feelings, keeps one alive intellectually and emotionally. 

    Chris E. on Jun 30, 2010.

  • Nottingham Culture & Café Scientifique

     It is a great way of meeting people with similar interests and to listen to extremely interesting talks. 

    Patricia on Jun 29, 2010.

  • Nottingham Culture & Café Scientifique

     Others should join if they are interested in ideas and knowledge for its own sake - and for the sheer pleasure of discussing ideas. The range and depth of material we have covered in 10 years has been staggering - and the community of free thinkers that has come about just through these events is one of the richest aspects of living in Nottingham...... 

    Robin J. on Jun 14, 2010.

  • Nottingham Culture & Café Scientifique

     Friendly, stimulatiing and varied! 

    Richard C on Jun 7, 2010.

  • Nottingham Culture & Café Scientifique

     Plenty of distinguished and very interesting speakers, but it belongs to the audience who get and seize the change to contribute in enlightening and stimulating ways. 

    Richard F. on Jun 7, 2010.

  • Nottingham Culture & Café Scientifique

     Because it's great and we are all lovely. 

    Nick H. on May 20, 2010.

  • Nottingham Culture & Café Scientifique

     interesting, welcoming and friendly bunch - who like reading, moves, cocktails, Greggs(!), gigs and all sort of things 

    David on May 19, 2010.

  • Nottingham Culture & Café Scientifique

     Restores the art and (science!) of stimulating conversation in our lives. Gets you thinking about and debating important issues that we have a collective responsibility for on this planet 

    Di on Jun 23, 2009.

  • Nottingham Culture & Café Scientifique

     This group is an excellent forum to meet interesting people and learn whilst having a good time. 

    Adela on Apr 28, 2009.

  • Nottingham Culture & Café Scientifique

     Book club is a good way to read one book a month and to meet other book readers to discuss the book. 

    Julie on Apr 23, 2009.

  • Nottingham Culture & Café Scientifique

     The more varied the audience, the more interesting the Q&A which is the major part of each session. 

    Fran on Mar 2, 2009.

  • Nottingham Culture & Café Scientifique

     Lots of stuff on, a good varied crowd. Friendly to the shy (no membership fee, so what have you got to lose?) and interface v user friendly.
