Skeptics in the Shark Tank
The South East Skeptics Society are taking over Brighton's Sea-Life Centre for a night of science, comedy and good conversation on Saturday the 11th of October 2014, from 7pm until late. The audience will hear from three top-quality speakers and have full access to the complex for the whole evening, so they can enjoy a drink and a chat in the company of giant crabs, sharks and fellow skeptics. A bar will be open for the duration of the event.
We are very pleased indeed to present Dr Helen Czerski as one of our two main speakers for the evening. As well as her fascinating work on ocean bubbles, Dr Czerski is known for her work on programmes such as the BBC's 'Horizon' and ' The Sky at Night'. Dr Czerski will be giving a talk about the world beneath the waves.

The evening will be rounded off with stand-up comedy from a local, award-winning comedian before a few hours of merriment beneath the vaulted ceilings of one of Brighton's finest buildings. As attendees will have full access to the Sea-Life Centre for the duration of the evening it promises to be a memorable night!
This event is being organised to celebrate and promote the region's Skeptics in the Pub groups and is not for profit. Any funds left after running costs will go towards similar SESS events.
