Welcome to the Greater Manchester Skeptics Society!
We’ve run well over a hundred events since 2009, including the Manchester Skeptics in the Pub events, which are held twice each month. A bunch of Mancunian skeptics get together in the pub to discuss science, history, maths or whatever — sometimes with a guest speaker, sometimes without. If the pub’s not your thing, we also have a book club.
You don’t have to be a member to come to our events, everyone and anyone is welcome — even if you disagree with the speaker. If you’re in Manchester, come along!
Below are some links to what’s going on at the moment — we’d love to extend our offerings, so if you have any ideas, suggestions or requests then please get in touch.

GMSS and Richard Dawkins Foundation donate £1,000 to Good Thinking Society January 27, 2016 - As a registered charity, we massively appreciate the support of the skeptical community and the donations we receive from individuals and organisations who want us to continue our work. With this in mind, we would like to thank the Greater Manchester Skeptics Society (GMSS) and Richard Dawkins Foundation (RDF) for their generous and hugely-appreciated donation of £1,000, resulting from an event that they jointly organised.
