Café Scientifique is a place where, a cup of coffee or a glass of wine in your hand, you can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. The first Cafés Scientifiques in the UK were held in Leeds in 1998. From there, cafes gradually spread across the country. Currently, some forty or so cafes meet regularly to hear scientists or writers on science talk about their work and discuss it with diverse audiences.

📅 Saturday 16 March 2019
All I Wanna Do Is [FX: GUNSHOTS] With a [FX: GUN RELOADING] and a [FX: CASH REGISTER] and Perform Some Comedy!
One of UK comedy’s acknowledged masters of the avant-garde, the riskily niche cultural reference, and the extended riff on Geoffrey Chaucer, heads to York's Basement with his smash-hit hour of hyper-articulate stupidity and a title which has been causing misery across arts desks around the UK.
One of the Edinburgh Fringe's most celebrated talents of recent times sets out with one of the most unusual and unmissable tours this year. John-Luke Roberts' show this year was a complete sell-out run and one of the most talked-about shows of the festival.
