Welcome to Guildford Skeptics in the Pub. We host speakers on subjects such as science, superstition, alternative medicine, philosophy and religion* in the relaxed atmosphere of the backroom of the Star Inn, Guildford.
Speakers come from a wide range of backgrounds and viewpoints but, ultimately, are skeptical. Skepticism, put basically, is an insistence on robust evidence for claims; claims of the efficacy of alternative medicine, the existence of mystical beings, crytozoological oddities and deities; the claims of psychics, astrological predictions... and more!
Guildford Skeptics is one of a collective group of Skeptics in the Pub Groups in the South East - conveniently named the South East Skeptics' Society! What does that mean for you, and for our speakers? Well, there's a whole page on it, here
*not an exhaustive list!

Dean Burnett is a doctor of neuroscience, psychiatry lecturer and sometimes stand-up comic, but he is most widely known as the writer of the popular science/humour blog 'Brain Flapping' for the Guardian.
Dean's attempts to promote science and combat pseudoscience and ignorance via humour have lead to many interesting results, such as being mistaken for Doctor Who, becoming a celebrity in the world of yoghurt and bonding with Stephen Fry over their mutual love of Hitler.
Come see him discuss these and other interesting stories
