Anyone with a scientific outlook would probably enjoy Cafe Scientifique - “a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology”. Similarly, Philosophy in Pubs, “a group of like-minded people searching for philosophical stimulation in a relaxed atmosphere” comes highly recommended, as does Skeptics in the Pub (in Brighton, Lewes, Eastbourne, Worthing and Horsham). Nerd Nite ("Like the Discovery Channel™…with Beer!") also takes place in Brighton, as does Sunday Assembly Brighton, "A godless congregation that meets monthly to hear great talks, sing songs and generally celebrate life".
