Cafe Scientifique @ Cornerstone Arts
Jun 19 @ 7:30 pm

Talks start at 7.30pm on the third Tuesday of every month at Cornerstone, Didcot.

There is no need to book – just turn up! However, please be aware – should visitor numbers exceed the capacity of the venue, some people may be denied entry, therefore, do come early to get a good seat!

Each month we have a different speaker, and would welcome your ideas for topics or speakers. The events are aimed at an audience aged 16+.

Whilst the event is free, we do ask for a voluntary donation to cover the cost of hiring the sound amplification that is required now our numbers have grown. Donations will not be regulated – we’re well aware that some will be able to pay, some will wish to overpay at some meetings and ignore the pot at others, and some may find it difficult to contribute in this way.

Didcot First has been organising the Didcot Café Scientifique since 2010. It is important to us because we have some really ground breaking and earth shattering science happening all around us: at Harwell, Rutherford, Culham, Milton Park, etc. and we want to help connect local people (scientists and complete novices) with what is happening in these places.
