Call for Soapbox Speakers
Update: this event is in the past so we no longer need speakers, unless they have an extremely compelling talk about how time travel is more likely than most people think.
Request for study participants
We've been contacted by a researcher from Uclan, who is running a study comparing sceptics and believers in the paranormal, but doesn't have enough sceptics yet.
Call for talks — Soapbox 2017
If you have a skeptical topic you’re passionate about, or just cross and knowledgeable, then get in touch and you could be one of our August speakers.
Donation to bombing victim fund
At our quiz last night, members of the University of Manchester Rock Metal & Alternative Society and the Greater Manchester Skeptics Society donated £74.61 to families of the victims of this week's terrorist attack on the Manchester Arena.
Last Chance for Pint of Science Tickets
Pint of Science is a three-day series of science talks around Manchester.
QED Tickets On-Sale
We have some venue changes on the go at the moment.
Firstly, our last social was in the Old Monkey rather than the Crown and Kettle. This may be an ongoing change, although the Old Monkey isn't available on Thursdays so it may not work in the long run.
Second, our next speaker event, Dr Jenny Cole's The Case For Gossip, will be at the Briton's Protection rather than the King's Arms. If it goes well then we might be back there for our speaker event in July, as the King's Arms is busy hosting a large chunk of the Greater Manchester Fringe in July.
April Speaker Cancellation
Unfortunately, due to both venue and speaker availability, we haven't been able to put together a speaker event this month.
