Cafe Scientifique

Cafes Scientifique are informal and lively discussion events around contemporary science issues that take place in local bars, cafes and pubs.  Taking place on the first Tuesday of every month, we feature a variety of local scientists and engineers, talking about their work and how it affects the average person in the street.  Always fun, sometimes controversial, these events are a great way to get to the heart of the matter.

Dr David Gregory


Science and the Media

Join local science correspondent David Gregory to hear about his experiences of science in the media. Many scientists blame poor and misleading media coverage for the stories that appear in the public forum, but how open and helpful are scientists in making sure that coverage is accurate and accessible? What checks are made before reporting science stories in the media and how much of what you read or see should you believe?

David will share stories from his many years of experience of working at the BBC and give us an insider's view of this contentious topic

6.30pm for 7.00pm start
