Wycombe Skeptics in the Pub is a place for inquisitive people of all ages to meet and converse in the High Wycombe area.
Skeptics are people who yearn to discover the truth behind extraordinary claims that people or groups may make, this can be in areas of alternative therapies, the paranormal, religion and faith, the afterlife or many other areas of life.
We make no claims to balance, and actively promote science, freedom of expression and secular humanism. We often end up talking about superstition, religious fundamentalism, censorship and conspiracy theory... and many other topics too!
We meet every two weeks, sometimes we have a guest speaker, and sometimes we just have a good social get together and exchange ideas and discuss the topics of the week. See our events below, and our social page to find out when we are meeting next.
You are welcome to come along and just sit and listen to others, or if you are braver get stuck right in!
Most of us have a fondness for good quality beer, so our current home is Wycombe’s only specialty ale house & bottle bar, The Bootlegger on Amersham Hill. It is also a Bring Your Own Food Pub, and they have free WiFi.

3 Amersham Hill,
What's the talk about?
As tensions between the west and Kim Jong Un increase, Journalist and North Korea Watcher Alistair Coleman will be talking about the secretive kingdom and asking how much do we really know about North Korea?
Alistair has worked at BBC Monitoring for over 25 years, part of the World Service which watches and analyses the world's open source media. Starting his career as a technician, he specialises in studying media behaviour in North Korea for significant changes in tone that could betray changes in policy.
Alistair is a multiple award-winning blogger who enjoys questioning extremism, idiocy and dubious claims; including political blow-hards, religion, stage psychics, homeopaths and quackery.
