Pint of Science 2018

This year's Pint of Science has now finished and what a success! Thank you to all who were involved or bought a ticket - hopefully you loved it so much we'll be seeing you again next year.

We sold over 320 tickets and had 36 speakers from both Warwick and Coventry universities presenting their world leading, innovative or downright quirky research to the people of Coventry.
Speakers included all level of researchers from Masters (with research) students up to Professors - with some fantastic collaborative talks between them. All of which stepping up to the challenge to make their talks fun and informative to a lay audience.
We are now working on the plan for 2019, so please come back soon for further updates and to sign up to be involved in next year's Festival.
