Coronavirus: Events may be cancelled and venues closed at short notice, you are advised to check on their websites before making a trip.

Join special guest Simon Singh for a drink and a lively discussion on alternative medicine, based around his appropriately-named book Trick or Treatment? Alternative Medicine on Trial.

Simon Singh is well known for his bestsellers Fermat's Last Theorem, The Code Book and Big Bang. However, he has also become famous for recently being sued for libel by the British Chiropractic Association, after publishing a comment in The Guardian.

In Trick or Treatment, he scrutinises the evidence for and against the effectiveness of alternative therapies like chiropractic treatment and homeopathy. Although it helps, there is no need to read the book, as the discussion will be about alternative medicine and the type of evidence (or lack of evidence!) supporting them.
