British Science Festival

Welcome to the British Science Festival

Each September the British Science Festival transforms a different UK city into a vibrant celebration of science, engineering and technology. This year's Festival took place in Birmingham, in partnership with the University of Birmingham, from 6 - 11 September 2014.

We are pleased to announce the University of Bradford as host for the 2015 British Science Festival. Taking place from 7-10 September 2015, this is the fourth time Bradford has hosted the Festival, the first being in 1873, and most recently in 2011.
