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 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month, sometimes we have a guest speaker, and sometimes we just 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, and also our social page to find out when we are meeting next.

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 the Bootlegger Pub, and our talks are currently at the Arts4Everyone centre on Desborough Road.

What's the talk about?

The Council of Ex Muslims of Britain (CEMB) marched in the London pride procession this year to express their solidarity for those LGBT individuals in Muslim majority countries that would be executed simply for who they are. 
 

Although there were Christian groups marching with placards saying "God is gay" and "Jesus has two fathers", CEMB's "Allah is Gay" placards have recieved a deluge of negative press, even though the response from those that came to watch the march was largely positive.  

 

Sadia Hameed is a spokesperson for the  Council of Ex Muslims of Britain and has worked in the violence against women's sector for much of her career, with a focus on the experiences of Black and Minority ethnic women. 
 
She was awarded Activist of the year in March by the Iranian and Kurdish Women's Rights Organisation and Selected as one of the top 100 women in the World by Lift Effects.
