What we’re about

Brighton Café Scientifique is Science for the Sociable!

Informal talks of about 30-45 minutes are given by experts in their field, at a level accessible to all. After a break, the talk is followed by a question and answer session, and open discussion on the topic of the evening.

We usually meet on the second Wednesday of the month, at 7:30 for 8:00pm start. Our regular venue from February 2024 is the Wagner Hall, Regency Road, Brighton BN1 2RU (adjoining the Bright Helm on West Street). Meetings are free, although a collection is taken to contribute to the running expenses of the organisation. There is a bar, open from 7:15pm.

Our dates for 2024: Wed 13 March, Thurs 11 April, Wed 8 May, Wed 12 June, Wed 14 August, Mon 2 September, Wed 18 September, Wed 9 October, Wed 13 November, Wed 11 December.

Our dates for 2025: Wed 8 January, Wed 12 February, Wed 12 March, Wed 9 April etc.

Brighton Café Sci is part of the international Café Scientifique movement.

Please note: Occasionally we may arrange meetings on days other than the second Wednesday of the month, depending on the availability of speakers and the venue.
