Informal Events

Brighton is a vibrant city and there’s lots going on in the evenings. Events such as 
Nerd Nite and Cafe Scientifique give you an opportunity to meet new people and also practice your public speaking skills in a friendly environment.

Nerd Nite

Nerd Nite logoNerd Nite is similar to PubHD, but the events are bigger with slightly longer talks. It also attracts established academics, alongside PhD students. The location varies, but it’s usually in central Brighton. Sometimes they run events as part of the Brighton Fringe Festival, too.

For more information, visit the Nerd Nite website, or follow them on Twitter.



Café Scientifique

Cafe 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 cafes, bars and restaurants. Although the speakers tend to be academics, the talks are aimed at a general audience.

The Brighton group meets on the third Wednesday of the month at the Latest Music Bar, Manchester Street.
