The British Science Association (formerly known as the BA) envisages a society in which people from all walks of life are able to access science, engage with it and feel a sense of ownership about its direction. The British Science Association is a nationwide organisation, with Branches from Cornwall to Aberdeen and Regional Officers through the English regions and in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
The Oxford Branch of the British Science Association runs SciBar events on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at St Aldates Tavern in Oxford city centre. SciBar is literally science in a bar and is a free and relaxed event. To find out more visit our SciBar page

What and When is SciBar??
SciBar is exactly what it sounds like - Science in a Bar! Our goal is to bring science to a wider audience in a relaxing and informal environment.
These events are run at St Aldates Tavern (see below for map) in Oxford city centre, normally on the third Wednesday of every month, starting at 7pm. The topics are varied, previously we've covered everything from detox diets to the legacy humans will leave on the Earth, so there's bound to be something that appeals to all tastes. You can see a list of our previous speakers on our Past Events page!
The events are free and no previous science knowledge is required - so come along and learn the science behind everyday life over a pint!
The Oxford Bus Company runs multiple routes to St Aldates, check their website for details!
Public parking is a challenge in Oxford city centre, but there are a number of car parks within a reasonable walk of St Aldates Tavern. Check them out here.
From Oxford Rail Station, St Aldates Tavern is approximately a 15 minute walk away.
