  • Online science talks

    Ferrán Adriá at the Harvard Science & Cooking Lecture Series 2011

    Some additional science content to keep you busy over the summer whilst Salisbury Cafe Sci will not be running any talks.

  • New and Improved website

    The website has been running for almost five years now in its current form, based on the WordPress Content Management System. Over that time, it has been extended with plugins such as the Timely calendar but is largely as originally implemented. Despite being heavily standards based, it has been noted that the user experience could […]

  • Attend a Cafe Sci event

    Each month, we get a number of requests for booking places at our events. In most cases, there is no need; our events are free to attend and booking is not required. The venue is spacious and can accommodate large audiences and thanks to the generosity of our speakers and organisers, there is no need […]

  • Shifting seasons and event times; an apology…

    Apologies if you have been confused by the apparent time shift for events from April onwards; the website has been showing these events starting and finishing an hour later than usual. This was due to a quirk in the calendar time zone settings, daylight saving, GMT and the like. On the website that is not […]

    The calendar now has the dates for all the talks through to February 2014. Posters and further details will be posted as soon as they are available. There’s a gap for August as there is no meeting in August. There is also a gap in September but rest assured there will be a meeting, the […]

  • New calendar

    The calendar has again been updated to improve usability. It still supports all the same functionality such as ICS feeds (so you can add individual events or the entire calendar to your own calendars, on your computer, phone, iPad, etc) and a variety of views. Feeds from other calendars are pulled in automatically, so we […]

  • Event times – oops!

    Due to a small problem with the calendar, some upcoming events were listed as starting at 6pm. Just to confirm that all forthcoming events start at 7pm as usual; doors open at 7pm for a prompt 7.30pm start. The calendar has been updated and now shows the correct times. Sorry about that; the calendar imps […]

  • New and improved mailing list

    As part of ongoing improvements, we’ve moved the mailing list over to MailChimp to let the monkey (or ape, rather) do the monkey work. This means that anyone can now subscribe or unsubscribe using a new page on the website and it makes it much easier for us to manage the mailing list and any […]
