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, keep an eye out for our occasional other events.

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.
