ATOM is an Abingdon based society that is open to everybody with an interest in science and technology. Every month we have talks and friendly events for our members. You are welcome to come along to any of our events and join us, if you like it. We normally meet on the 3rd Thursday of every month at 19:00 for a 19:30 start.

If you want to learn more, come along or contact our secretary for more information.

Important COVID-19 Pandemic Update:

Given the updated Government COVID Restrictions we have decided to conduct our events in person again. We have moved to our brand new venue, the Northcourt in Abingdon (also the site of the Abingdon Football Club). Doors will open at 19:00 for a 19:30 start, and there will be a bar!

While the government has removed any legal requirements for restrictions, we recognise that the pandemic is not over, and there may be those of you who are concerned about a complete removal of restrictions. The venue has requested that attendees continue to wear masks when not seated (although this will not be enforced should people wish to remove them). There will also be a one way system in place, doors and windows will be open for ventilation, and plenty of hand sanitiser will be available at various locations within the room. We will also request that, where possible, people try and distance from other attendees who are not in their own social bubble when choosing seats. If anyone has any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to contact the committee either via email, or in person on the night. We want everyone to feel safe and comfortable to attend what is sure to be a great evening!

Anyone who was an active member of the society prior to the pandemic halting our in person talks, or who have joined this year, will have their membership honoured until January 2022. This means that for any members, events are free! For guests, our original costs will be reinstated at £3 per person, free for under 18s.
