Wycombe Skeptics in the Pub is a place for inquisitive people of all ages to meet and converse in the High Wycombe area.

Skeptics are people who yearn to discover the truth behind extraordinary claims that people or groups may make, this can be in areas of alternative therapies, the paranormal, religion and faith, the afterlife or many other areas of life.

We make no claims to balance, and actively promote science, freedom of expression and secular humanism. We often end up talking about superstition, religious fundamentalism, censorship and conspiracy theory... and many other topics too!

We meet on the 3rd Wednesday of the month, where we have a guest speaker, and we also have extra ad-hoc times where we have a good social get together and exchange ideas and discuss the topics of the week. See our events list on the right hand side of this page, or join our Meetup page, or Facebook fage to find a list of all events (see our links page)

You are welcome to come along and just sit and listen to others, or if you are braver get stuck right in!

We meet for socials at various pubs, and our talks are currently at the Wycombe Arts Centre on Desborough Road.
