Interested in science and pubs? Come and enjoy an evening (or 3) of public science talks, demonstrations, and experiments in a pub in Sheffield next month!

  • What? I will be giving an outreach talk about my research in solar physics in a pub in Sheffield as part of Pint of Science.
  • Where? My talk is at The Holt Cafe, 156 Arundel St, Sheffield S1 4RE. Other events are spread out at pubs throughout Sheffield.
  • When? My talk is on 17th May, 7:30-9:45pm. Other events take place on the evenings of the 15th, 16th, and 17th May.

Pint of Science is an international festival that brings together local scientists to talk to the public about their latest research in an informal setting. This year, I will be giving a talk as part of the Death of Stars: A Dark Matter session alongside fascinating talks given by Dr. Susan Cartwright and Dr. Callum Macdonald as well as some interactive science demonstrations.
