About the Festival
The British Science Festival is one of Europe's largest celebrations of science, engineering and technology, with over 250 events, activities, exhibitions and trips taking place over a week in September.
Our Festival is unique in the UK as it moves to a different location every year. In previous years it has taken place in York, Liverpool, Guildford, Birmingham, Aberdeen and in 2013 we'll be visiting Newcastle upon Tyne.
The programme of events offers something for everyone with activities for families and schools groups, adults looking for entertainment and stimulating debate, as well as events aimed at professionals interested in the latest research.
