Tickets now available to MSSX – the 10th anniversary of the Merseyside Skeptics Society

Celebrate ten years of the Merseyside Skeptics Society with us, at our special one-day event at the Liner Hotel in Liverpool.

It’s been ten years since the first meeting of the MSS, and ten years since the first episode of Skeptics with a K – the UK’s longest-running skeptical podcast. In that time, we have:

  • led an international flashmob protest against homeopathy,
  • challenged the UK’s most notorious psychic to prove her ability,
  • actually tested three people who believe they have psychic abilities,
  • invited the people of Liverpool to a review our made-up homeopathic vodka,
  • closed down a company who claimed to ‘un-clump’ your blood,
  • investigated countless healers, cancer quacks and mediums,
  • had our palms read, our auras cleansed, our energy fields Reiki’d and our Qi gong-ed,
  • co-founded the UK’s largest gathering of skeptics and critical thinkers,
  • hosted more than 100 free events for the Merseyside community, and
  • published 242 Skeptics with a Ks, 57 Be Reasonables, and 45 InKredulouses.

To see our first decade out with a bang, we’ve decided to throw a party, and you’re all invited.
