The Pint of Science Festival will bring researchers to seven pubs across the city over three nights in May.

The international festival is run by a non-profit organisation and provides an outlet for science talks and demonstrations, Q&A panels and quizzes.

To expand on last year’s festival, guests can expect to see new science and new perspectives on recent research brought to light.

Pint of Science Norwich coordinator Sophie Prosolek said the festival would provide “a comfortable environment for the public to feel free to ask questions” and allow people to “have a bit of fun”.
