A-Z LECTURES and CATEGORIES

Local Society: Stockton-on-Tees

'A place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to have a conversation about the latest ideas in science and technology. Meetings have taken place in cafes, bars, restaurants, theatres, libraries and even out of doors, but always outside a traditional academic context ... Audiences are people who are interested in science. Anyone can participate; speakers are there to be questioned and talk about their work at all levels.'

Started 1947: 'The membership is usually around 30-35, with over twenty regularly attending meetings. The Society has also an active stamp packet which is circulated around members in the Society and other adjacent Societies. The Society is a small friendly group of members whose collecting interests cover a variety of subjects and themes. A number of members meet up in a local hostelry after the meeting to discuss various matters and generally put the world to rights – why don’t you come along to one of our meetings?'
