Talks and lectures exploring the world of science: from getting under the skin of the world’s largest animals and the relationship between science and religion to electric cars and the Science of Doctor Who, as well as special Olympics events

Events of a more grown-up variety, including an interactive workshop exploring the Chemistry of Cocktails and the return of the Science Pub Quiz

Science with a comedy twist – Helen Keen returns with her latest show Robot Woman of the future, and we welcome stand-up mathematician Matt Parker with his unique take on Freaky Probability

Kick Start the Summer Holidays with a Bang!

This year the festival is running throughout the first week of the school summer holidays, and we have loads of events lined up for all the family.

We have workshops where you can make musical instruments out of old bits of junk, try your hand at Stone Age archaeology, and programme LEGO® Robots.

Learn how to make Elephants’ Toothpaste, how the ear works and about the science of superhumans in our interactive shows. And attend talks on animal welfare, the search for aliens and the future of air travel.

Perfect for inspiring any budding young scientist!
