An international festival arrives in Manchester later this month, taking over four bars and pubs for three nights of science chat. Pint of Science was established in 2012 and now incorporates events in 21 cities across six countries. Manchester’s involvement is in association with Manchester University, who will be providing speakers on subjects as diverse as ‘The scent of a maggot’, ‘Exploring the moon’ and ‘Taking volcanoes to the IMAX’. From Monday 19 to Wednesday 21 May, Withington’s Solomon Grundy, West Didsbury’s The Albert Club, Oxford Road’s Odder and The English Lounge in the city centre will host evening-time talks by academics from the university. Each event features one or two discussions, with an entry price of just £2. It’s the perfect chance to expand your knowledge while simultaneously killing brain cells with a pint or three – visit the site below for full information.
