(slightly spooky) Physics in the Pub

Join us for the evening at a cosy, candle-lit pub and let two charming physicists and a comedian teach you a little physics, perform a slightly spooky physics demo, and tell bad science jokes. And if all that is not enough, there is lovely pub food, prizes for winning the physics pub quiz, and MORE prizes for dressing up.

Dr Tom Whyntie – particle physicist, winner of Famelab, TED talker and Science Showoff curator – will deepen our understanding of the particles that make up our universe.

Dr Brian Wecht – theoretical physicist, co-founder of the Story Collider, comedian and musician – will share the story behind some of the controversies in theoretical particle physics.

Rik Moore – comedian who describes himself as an ‘intriguing blend of chap, investigator and idiot’ – will be our lovely host for the evening.

Who is Physics in the Pub for?

Physics in the Pub is designed to be a good night out. The talks are for people with no physics background looking for something different to do, as well as those who know a little about the subject who want to indulge their interest. Bring yourself, or come with friends and partners.
