2018-19 Schedule

Every first Wednesday of the month sees the hosting of a Psychology talk in The Glebe Pub, Stoke-on-Trent. The Stoke “Psychologist in the Pub” is a series of free talks by psychologists from the Staffordshire and West Midlands region and are open to everyone! Details of upcoming and past talks can be found via the “Psychologist in the Pub” tab above.

Stoke’s Psychologist in the Pub series is a sub-branch of the British Psychological Society‘s West Midlands branch. The talks provide a forum for psychologists, healthcare professionals, students, and anyone with an interest in Psychology to hear about the latest psychological research being conducted in the West Midlands.

Guests should aim to arrive from 5:30pm (note that there are limited chairs and the talks are popular!). Talks start at 6pm and finish by 7pm with opportunities for networking and discussion afterwards. Directions to the Glebe can be found here.
