in Eastbourne and Brighton
Our funfair with a twist celebrates the twentieth anniversary of Harry Potter by doling out a little magic of our own. And why stop at Potter? We have magic from The Lord of the Rings and from Star Wars. It's very easy magic. Even parents can do it. We'll teach you to  perform miracles in your local cafe with just the cups, straws and napkins. The amazed baristas will run away to sign up for a course in physics that very day.
Eastbourne Under Ground Theatre - July 24
10am - 4pm - details HERE

Our magic isn't really magic, actually. We're just playing with the science of electronics. Of course electronics seems like magic when you can talk to someone on the other side of the planet, in a whisper, using a phone the size of a chocolate bar. But it isn't magic. When you can finish the call, then eat the phone like a chocolate bar, that's magic.

It's great to see the Skeptics back in rude health, casting their gladiatorial eye over everything dodgy. They are few and the enemies of reason are many. On July 27 they proclaim that     


Why do Americans believe conspiracy theories? Who does the scapegoating, and who is the goat? What role did conspiracy theories play in the election of Donald Trump?  Dr. Uscinski, author of  American Conspiracy Theories (OUP) has a counter-intuitive insight - just right for skeptics.
