Head down to your local pub to hear scientists discussing everything from vaccines to disease outbreaks.

Pint of Science Salisbury is a scheme drawing expert scientists down their local to answer the biggest question: what next?

Public Health England scientists appearing in the city’s bars for the festival of public science talks in Salisbury.

Salisbury joins more than 300 cities around the world taking part in this global festival from May 20 to 22.

Salisbury hosts part of the Pint of Science festival later this month – with Public Health England (PHE) scientists part of the educational event.

Experts from PHE go down the pub giving talks on everything from the dangers of the modern world (and what science is doing about it) to beating the bugs, and from the Ebola outbreak to superbugs.

The international, three-day Pint of Science festival involves thousands of scientists simultaneously bringing their research out of the lab to share with the public in 300 cities in 24 countries. Founded seven years ago by two UK researchers, the festival brings a unique line up of talks, demonstrations and live experiments to favourite locals.

New for 2019 is the festival theme “What Next?” – a critical question posed to researchers working across a huge range of scientific disciplines.

Public Health England researchers are at two pubs in Salisbury: @home, 5 Bridge Street, and The Winchester Gate, 113 Rampart Road.

Tickets and more information about dates and times are on the Pint of Science website (www.pintofscience.co.uk), with each evening costing £4.

For a variety of talks from PHE’s locally-based scientific experts.

No background in science is required to take part in this fun event. Alongside the main talks there will be a surprise interactive activity and the opportunity to win Pint of Science glasses as prizes!
