Café Culture welcomes you to a season of discussions on culture, politics, philosophy and science. Our events are open to and welcome everyone. No prior knowledge is needed.

Events are free and take place on Mondays usually the first and third from 7pm prompt until 9pm. We ask you to arrive before 7pm to minimise disruption. Please note: the Café door (to the right of DC Reception as you enter the building) is closed after 7pm to allow the event to begin, after this an organiser will open the door for latecomers if required. All events are free but please note this year some events are ticketed. Book your ticket well in advance. Tickets are limited. See individual events for booking details. You can just turn up for all other events.
