2023 will see its tenth anniversary, with events in over 25 countries and hundreds of cities around the world. Each night will provide a unique line-up of talks, demonstrations, and live experiments held in a relaxed and informal environment. The events provide a platform for researchers to share their stories, and audiences an opportunity to ask their questions about science to those directly behind it.

Alongside the main talks, this year audiences will go head-to-head in the largest-ever multi-city pub quiz, tackling a series of science-themed questions to prove which location has the strongest trivia knowledge.

Event Coordinators and Doctoral Researchers from Loughborough University, David Whitfield, Fay Claybrook, and Natasha Kitcher commented: “Science is for everyone to explore, and we are excited to share some of Loughborough University’s most exciting discoveries with the wider public thanks to Pint of Science. It’s going to be a fantastic three days supporting local businesses in the town, and hopefully, this event will be the first of many for the area.”
