The Pint of Science festival aims to deliver interesting, fun, relevant talks on the latest science research in an accessible format to the public – all in the pub! The event aims to provide a platform which allows people to discuss research with the people who carry it out. It is run by volunteers and was established by a community of postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers in 2012. The festival takes place annually over three days simultaneously in pubs across the world. Pint of Science is a non-profit organisation.

In 2012 Michael Motskin and Praveen Paul were two research scientists at Imperial College London. They started and organised an event called ‘Meet the Researchers’ which brought people affected by Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, motor neurone disease and multiple sclerosis into their labs to show them the kind of research they do. It was inspirational for both visitors and researchers. They thought if people want to come into labs to meet scientists, why not bring the scientists out to the people? And so Pint of Science was born. In May 2013 they held the first Pint of Science festival which featured some of the biggest names in their fields to explain their ground-breaking work to lovers of science and beer. It was a phenomenal success of course!

The event will run over 3 days in various Bitters N Twisted venues and should be a lot of fun!
