Tickets are on sale now for the world’s largest festival of public science talks.
Taking place at pubs across the city, more than 35 University of Liverpool academics will explore topics ranging from Netflix hit Stranger Things to dog bites.
On from 22-24 May 2023, the three-day festival takes place simultaneously across the world with hundreds of cities participating. Pint of Science brings thousands of scientists and their research out of the lab and into a pub near you.
Events will take place at venues including Leaf, Tempest, The Philharmonic Dining Rooms and The Shipping Forecast with talks including:
• Upside Down: The Science of Stranger Things
• The Politics of Mental Health
• The Inebriated Brain: Why you can Speak German Better after Two Pints?!
• Alcohol, Crime and Justice: A Complex Cocktail
• Dogs of the North: Does Liverpool Have a Dog Bite Problem?
• How to Regenerate a Liver
• How can we Create an Equal Playing Field for Dementia Care?
Tickets are just £5 and can be found here.
Also, not to be missed, the daring Shots of Science speakers will compete in a series of rapid-fire talks with the winner voted for by the public.
Laura Winters, Public Engagement Officer, Faculty of Health and Life Sciences, University of Liverpool said: “This will be Liverpool’s largest Pint of Science festival to date, and we’re delighted to be part of this international event. Not only are we having fun and inviting people to learn something new, we are also shining a spotlight on the incredible research happening right here in Liverpool. Pint of Science gives researchers the opportunity to share their stories, and audiences an opportunity to ask questions about science to those directly behind it.”
Alongside the main talks, this year audiences can go head-to-head in the largest ever multi-city pub quiz. Teams in each venue will compete against others across the city and the rest of the UK as they tackle a series of science-themed questions to prove which city has the strongest trivia knowledge.
Pint of Science was founded in 2013 and this year marks the festival’s 10th anniversary.
