Cheltenham Science Festival

#1  Postby jerome » May 26, 2012 12:06 am

Cheltenham Science Festival is almost upon us 12th - 17th June. You can have a look and book tickets here.

Hopefully Cheltenham Skeptics In the Pub will run their wonderful evening fringe events again. :dance:

Anyone coming? I'll be there all week, and would be happy to have coffee with you chaps and chapesses. Then I can try and convert ya' all! :cheers:

Unlikely. I'd love to, but time away is at a premium for me at the mo.

With topics including magic ~ and how to stop a zombie outbreak


I'm in, this is obviously very important!
I may be able to pass through, I live in Devon but my family is just a couple of junctions north of 'Nam. Also, I'd crawl over broken glass to see Dr Alice Roberts..

aargh. there are several there that are tempting, however seems rather expensive. not to mention preferable as a single fee (day/week).

that said, I dont know when I'm wanted in the lab - so far just been given "do a week mid June-ish", so might not even be able to go if I could afford it.
