Welcome to the website for the Salisbury Café Scientifique!

Here you will find information about the Salisbury based branch of this international organisation including details of our past and future talks and how to attend one of our events.
Café Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. Meetings have taken place in cafes, bars, restaurants and even theatres, but always outside a traditional academic context.
Café Scientifique is a forum for debating science issues, not a shop window for science. We are committed to promoting public engagement with science and to making science accountable. Everyone is welcome to come and express their views or just enjoy a drink and listen. No scientific knowledge is assumed and everyone can participate.
