Event details

Pint of Science Festival event

Part of the Pint of Science 2021 festival. The invisible and mysterious force of gravity is all around us and affects everything from atoms to galaxies. Join us on a trip of scientific discovery with an application scientist through the medium of circus! Watch and perform circus acts in the name of science and see how various scientific subjects can be conveyed through aerial acrobatics. 

About Pint of Science 

Pint of Science is a grassroots non-profit organisation that has grown astronomically since two scientists decided to shared their research back in 2013. Each year we look forward to sharing the latest scientific discoveries with you and giving you an opportunity to interact and ask questions. Effectively communicating scientific research has never been more important, and as an organisation run by thousands of volunteers – many of whom are researchers and scientists – we are keen to learn. 
 
This year, Pint of Science will be streaming live to YouTube during the evenings of Monday 17 May to Thursday 20 May (at 6pm, 7pm and 8pm) from over 35 locations across the UK. All shows are free to watch, and with nearly 70 live shows you are sure to find something which quenches your thirst for knowledge! 
 
The festival also includes Creative Reactions, a programme where artists and scientists partner to inspire each other and produce incredible artworks inspired by research. These works break down barriers and encourage creativity for both parties – with breath-taking results. The virtual exhibition will run throughout May and June 2021 on creativereactions.com
