Welcome to Edinburgh Skeptics



Edinburgh Skeptics have recently been awarded our second Ockham Award for Skeptical Outreach from the ever excellent The Skeptic Magazine at the recent QED Conference in Manchester. This is for the Fringe 2017 and complements the one we won for our 2013 Fringe line up.






Every month, Edinburgh Skeptics hosts a talk, a discussion group, a cinema night and a pub social night, and we have a lively Facebook Group.

All our events are free of charge, though we do ask for a purely voluntary donation to help offset our costs.

Details of our coming events are on Meetup
