Have humans always consumed alcohol? How has our relationship with it evolved over time? Join three experts for an evening of short talks and discussion exploring the history of alcohol consumption. From early primates to humans, the first ethanol fermentation to the local pub, discover the positives and negatives of our association with alcohol throughout history.

As our public events are free, not everyone who registers for tickets attends. To make sure we have a full house we allocate more tickets than there are seats. We do our best to get the numbers right, but unfortunately we occasionally have to disappoint people. Admission is on a first come, first served basis, so please arrive in good time for the start of the event.
