Festival coordinator, Jonathan James, said: “You should be in awe of the fascinating scientific discoveries and research across the UK. With nearly 600 events in more than 40 UK cities, there’s sure to be something for you.

“You don’t need any prior knowledge, and this is a chance to meet the people responsible for the future of science and have a pint with them.”

Pint of Science is a non-profit organisation that hopes for a world in which anybody who wants to learn more about science has the confidence and the means to do so.

They believe that someone’s background should not stop them from engaging with research.

The group of scientists and volunteers want science to be at the heart of society and a topic for pub conversation.

Jonathan, added: “We think that building a culture of curiosity and encouraging people to ask questions is vital if we’re to find solutions for some of humanity’s biggest problems.”

Alongside the main talks, each evening will also include a range of fun, science-related activities such as live experiments, science comedy, fun quizzes, brain teaser tests and other interactive games.

Tickets are priced at £4 per night at each venue.
