I'm an Australian science communicator, living in Edinburgh who sometimes works with the Edinburgh International Science Festival.

Together with a couple of other presenters/communicators we've started to run a monthly "Science Club" at a local bar. Similar to Cafe Scientifique, but with more of a focus on having fun with the ideas of science and "Geek" culture.

We would be interested in hosting events for the IYC, particularly around Janurary/February, in the Edinburgh area. We'd also be keen to put stuff on during the Edinburgh International Science Festival in April.
