Welcome to Skeptics in the Pub, Horsham. Our talks are held in the Studio at the Capitol Theatre on the second Thursday of the month.
Skeptics in the Pub is not about relentlessly disagreeing with everything. We just like questioning claims with the aim of figuring out what is real; it turns out that reality is far more amazing than anything we could imagine.
SitP Horsham is here to provide the people of Horsham and beyond with experts who like to talk about a huge variety of subjects, including science, the paranormal, journalism, history, gender issues, religion, astronomy, linguistics, hypnosis, maths, climate change - any subject really. Afterwards we ask questions, hear the answers and meet other people who like to do the same.
(We will be collecting £3 from audience members, to cover speaker expenses)
If you're local to Horsham, you might fancy going along to the other relatively nearby SitP groups in Guildford, Worthing, Eastbourne, Lewes, Brighton, Kingston and Tunbridge Wells - you'll find links to them and all the other Skeptics in the Pubs across the country at the bottom of this page.
If you have any suggestions, comments or questions at all or think you can help out in any way, then please get in touch using the "Contact Us" link at the top left of the page.

What's the talk about?
In a change to the usual format, we'll be presenting four speakers, each talking for about 15 minutes followed by a short Q&A.
More details are to follow but here's a brief intro...
Elizabeth Donnelly is a Humanist Celebrant and will be talking about what her work involves. Elizabeth is great to listen to on the subject and we're thrilled to host her.
Anita Marsden is a clinical psychologist, music festival organiser and the first female Streetwars champion. Anita will be talking about the subject of positive psychology
Chris Snowdon is an author who will be giving us a special talk on the "free men on the land" movement, where people effectively opt out of society and the law. Chris suggests that the movement is somewhat deluded.
Simon Clare is your regular host and will be performing a one-off talk about Horsham's very own charismatic evangelical church and demonstrating some of the miracles that supposedly happen there.
£3 on the door to cover venue hore and speaker expenses - no need to book in advance. 100 very comfortable seats will be waiting for you.
DON'T FORGET you can pre-order interval drinks at the bar - I would encourage you to do this! (The bar stays open late especially for us so if we can deal with interval drinks nice and quickly, the staff get to go home!)
