After selling out all events last year, Pint of Science returns to Nottingham for its 4th year running!

The international, three-day Pint of Science festival will see thousands of scientists simultaneously bringing their research out of the lab to share with the public in over 300 cities across 24 countries. Founded seven years ago by two UK researchers, the festival brings a unique line up of talks, demonstrations and live experiments to the nation’s favourite locals. New for 2019 is the festival theme “What Next?” – we’ll be posing this critical question to researchers working across a huge range of scientific disciplines.

  • Head down to your local pub to hear talks on everything from the linguistics to artificial intelligence.
  • More than 50 scientists to appear in city's watering holes, as the world's largest festival of public science talks arrives in Nottingham.
  • The festival has expanded on last year’s success and will be covering science from all 7 themes: ‘Planet Earth’, ‘Tech Me Out’, ‘Our Society’, ‘Our Body’, ‘Atoms to Galaxies’, ‘Beautiful Mind’ and Creative Reactions which brings together some of Nottingham’s brightest creatives with local academics to produce science inspired pieces of art!
