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.

Upcoming Events

  1. QED 2018… Again!

    After QED 2018, the organising team decided to take a well-earned rest, before bringing back the event, bigger than ever, in 2020. But 2020 had other plans. So we thought if we can’t have QED 2020, why not just have QED 2018... again?

    With the help of the fine folks at Skeptics in the Pub Online, we will be streaming videos of our favourite talks, panels and podcasts from QED 2018 on Twitch, free for all to come along and enjoy.

  2. The Human Cosmos – Dr Jo Marchant

    For most of human history, we have led not just an earthly existence but a cosmic one. Celestial cycles drove every aspect of our daily lives. Discover why stargazing can be really, really good for us. It is time for us to rediscover the full potential of the universe we inhabit, its wonder, its effect on our health, and its potential for inspiration and revelation.

    This event will be online, on the Skeptics in the Pub Twitch channel.
