Welcome to Lewes Skeptics in the Pub
What is Skeptics in the Pub?
Skeptics in the Pub (SitP) is a monthly event where people can meet and discuss science, skepticism, rationalism and critical thinking. At each event a speaker is invited to present a topic of interest, which is followed by a discussion in a relaxed and friendly pub atmosphere. There are now about 50 towns and cities throughout the UK & Ireland hosting Skeptics in the Pub events.
For more information about the idea behind Skeptics in the Pub please look at this BBC Report and this Wikipedia entry.
If you would like more information about Lewes Skeptics in the Pub or would like to volunteer in any way please send a message using the form at the bottom of the page or send a tweet to @LewesSkeptics. We also have a Lewes Skeptics Facebook group.
Entry to the talks will cost £3.50 payable on the door (if unsold seats available) or by advance ticket. Tickets for each event will become available soon after the preceding event and can be purchased from behind the bar at the Elephant & Castle, Lewes.
We are reviewing the online ticketing system, so please check back for information.
Please note: Events at the Elephant & Castle take place in an upstairs room and unfortunately there is no wheelchair access.

What's the talk about?
Robin Ince is in doubt, and battling dogma that seems to have become a creeping disease since social media rose. What does he know? Well, find out. He may also tell you something about Brian Cox's large hadron beauty regime
Robin Ince started his comedy career as a writer, working on shows including Alistair McGowan's Big Impresison, V Graham, Norton and Meet Ricky Gervais, his first of many collaborations with the Extras star.
Ince appeared with Gervais, Stephen Merchant and Jimmy Carr in the 2001 Edinburgh show Rubbernecker, and regularly supports Gervais on tour. He also appeared in one episode of The Office, playing interviewee Stewart Foot.
He's also Brian Cox's partner on Radio 4's The Infinite Monkey Cage (which might explain the insights into his beauty regime...)
