About Polymath Society


- What is a polymath?

A person of wide knowledge or learning.

- Do I have to be a polymath to join?

Of course not! The society welcomes anyone interested in encountering new ideas or discussing interesting topics.

- What happens in the meetings?

A member introduces a topic with a short presentation. The topic is then opened for discussion, and everyone present is free to contribute. Often the most fun comes out of the discussion or conversations that happen after the meetings are over, perhaps over a coffee or a beer.

- Do I have to give a presentation?

Only if you want to! Giving a talk (and participating in discussions) is entirely voluntary. You can just come along and enjoy the stimulating atmosphere and debate!

- How do I become a member?

Just turn up to one of the meetings and say hi!

- When and where are meetings?

Every Thursday at 6pm in Falmer House, more details on our Facebook page.

- Do I have to pay to become a member?

No, membership is free.
