Skeptics in the Pub

Cambridge Skeptics is part of the international Skeptics in the Pub Network. Skeptics in the Pub are groups which meet and converse in the UK and beyond, usually gathering once every month. Dr. Scott Campbell, who founded the first branch in London by in 1999, arranged lectures in pubs for anyone who was interested in science, history, psychology, philosophy or how to examine extraordinary claims of all sorts. The format was very popular after many groups adopted the format and title, the network was officially formed by Sid Rodrigues.
