Welcome to Headingley Café Scientifique!
Cafe Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. Meetings take place around the world in cafes, bars, restaurants and even theatres, but always outside a traditional academic context.
For general enquiries, email Cafe Sci.
We have postponed the start of live Cafes following the recent increase in Covid-19 cases. In the interests of safety we will continue online until things improve. We are sorry for any inconvenience but hope to see you again in person soon!
Headingley Café Scientifique holds regular monthly meetings to hear eminent speakers on all things scientific.
The events are very popular with lively discussion and informative talks. Topics are always relevant, cutting edge and up-to-date. They are often taken from a wider global discussion.
You can also get a drink at the bar at the interval or after the meeting.
All are welcome. The Café is held at The New Headingley Club on St Michael’s Road.
For information on topics please check the Meetings pages for updates or for more information join our email list from the Contact section.
Entry to each event is usually £3
