We meet once a month at various places around the region, often in Birmingham city centre. During the summer months we host a family picnic day, featuring the ‘Great BrumSciComm Bake Off’.

It is not unusual for people to try out new demonstrations, seek career advice or find themselves planning work with each other. We get people who aren’t even scientists; so no excuse. There is no guest speaker and we like it informal.

Our next social follows the Public Engagement with Research Day at the University of Birmingham on Friday 5th April. We’re returning to Cherry Reds on John Bright Street, right next to New Street station. Meet us upstairs in the Map Room from 18:00 onwards.

Definitely a sociable bunch.
