SkeptiCamp Manchester

For the second year running, we’re sponsoring a free SkeptiCamp event as part of QED weekend. At SkeptiCamp, the attendees are responsible for the creation and delivery of the day’s content, and anyone is eligible to present a talk. You don’t need to be a published author, famous podcaster or professional communicator to get involved. SkeptiCamp Manchester 2015 takes place on Friday 24th April and is completely free!

About North West Skeptical Events

QED is organised by North West Skeptical Events Ltd, a volunteer-owned non-profit organisation. Each year we aim for QED to break even, spending all funds raised by ticket sales on creating the best event possible. Any surplus generated from QED is reinvested in future events or donated to good causes.

None of the organisers benefit financially from QED; we give our time and effort for free because we love doing this.
