Cafe Scientifique is a place where, "anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. Meetings take place in cafes, bars, restaurants and even theatres, but always outside a traditional academic context."
NSB picked up a leaflet from the Nottingham branch at a recent Notts University public lectureand thought their calender of events looked quite interesting. All the talks are at 8pm on Monday nights and the venue is the Basement of the Lord Roberts Pub, Broad Street.
