The Pint of Science festival aims to deliver interesting and relevant talks on the latest science research in an accessible format to the public – mainly across bars, pubs, cafes and other public spaces. We want to provide a platform which allows people to discuss research with the people who carry it out and no prior knowledge of the subject is required.

In 2019 in bars across 400 cities and 24 countries.

For 2021 we for the (hopefully) last time move online.
