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. God: an Anatomy – Professor Francesca Stavrokopoulou

    How did a minor storm deity named Yaweh became the only god most people recognise? Examining God’s body, from his head to his hands, feet and genitals, we see how the Western idea of God developed, and see places and artefacts that shaped our view of this singular God and the ancient religions and societies of the biblical world, the origins of our oldest monotheistic religions, and the origins of Western culture.

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