Do I need tickets?
No, you just have to turn up on the night. We'll be asking for a £3 from each person on the door to help pay for hire expenses and speakers sundries.
You all sound very argumentative to me! I'm not sure if I want to come along.
We can be very arguementative, but only around the topics we put forward. Skepticism is about arguement, evidence and rational debate. And not everyone agrees with each other. It's not to everyone's taste, but you can always just have a sit down and listen to the speakers if you so wish and chat to the speaker in person after the Q&As if you had a pressing question you needed answering. They usually tend to stick around a while. We can debate and still be civil to each other. Most of the time.
Why do you meet in a pub?
Mainly for practical reasons, rather than any other. We prefer pub meetings to lecture theatres as they're much more relaxed and inviting. There's also the practical value in it's easy to find a cheap or free function room in a pub than say, a coffee shop or Café (which don't tend to have a back room for meetings and wont give you the whole shop), but there have been Skeptics in the Coffee House, Coffee Shops and Café's" in the US for many years, along with a "Skeptics in the Curry House". Hiring other venues have been proven to be prohibitavely expensive.
If you really don't like, or can't go in a licenced premises, I'd recommend the Centre for Inquiry lectures at Conway Hall in Holborn. You can find more about their events here: http://www.cfilondon.org
We've also planned a few "Skeptics in the Park" in the past, the first one being in summer 2000 with a UFO building competition, but we'll hope to put on more family events on in the future - British weather permitting.
Can you provide a projector/PA system?
If you're a speaker, yes.
I'd like to give some feedback of meetings. How do I do that?
