Dine and Debate

Sunday 14 April

In the spirit of the original Oyster Club founded by Adam Smith, Joseph Black and James Hutton, we invite you to discuss some of our most pressing scientific quandaries over supper. Hosted by comedian Susan Morrison with short presentations from experts and a delicious three course vegetarian meal, there will be plenty to chew over. 

Providing some food for thought, our presenters will be:

Dr Faye Skelton (Edinburgh Napier University), exploring the psychology of false confessions and what we can do to prevent them.

Dr Philip Cook (The University of Edinburgh), arguing that we should bring back child-labour.

Richard Kyle (Edinburgh Napier University), saying the choice is simple: lose weight or lose our NHS.

And while you get your teeth into the discussion, you can also enjoy a delicious three course meal:

Starter: Roast Fig & Fennel Salad with Goats Cheese on Grilled Sourdough Crostini

Main: Sumac Roasted Aubergine Halved Stuffed with Harissa Sauce, Chickpeas, Cumin, Chili & Pomegranate Seeds, Served With Peppers And Halloumi Salad With Herby Caper Dressing 

Dessert: Orange & Polenta Cake

Vegan, gluten free, and dairy free versions available. If you have dietary requirements or allergies please alert a member of staff at the event. Over 18s only.
