The Reading Branch of the British Science Association is proud to host Reading Cafe Scientifique events in central Reading each month where you can come and discuss anything from antibiotic resistance to particle physics. Everyone who wants to is welcome to ask a question or make a comment. You don’t need to be a scientist to enjoy the evening – just come with an open and enquiring mind.
