Sponsor the British Science Festival 2015

“The Festival does two things; first of all it brings people in to see the wonders of science and particularly young people, and secondly it listens to the anxieties and concerns they have, so that they become part of that science.”  Professor Robert Winston

“Because it (the Festival) is so big and because you get the best academics from around the country working in every field, you can come and see the cutting edge delivered by the people who are doing it.”  Professor Brian Cox

We are currently looking for sponsors to be involved and support the Festival in 2015. The British Science Festival is the largest science event in Europe and offers exciting opportunities for companies. We work closely with all of our sponsors to tailor a package to meet your objectives and budget.

For a taste of the British Science Festival please watch our short video at the top of the page.

Below are just a few examples of the opportunities the Festival offers: 

  • Opportunity for your company to be involved in Festival programming - highlighting your current agenda, or to support a high-profile Festival event
  • High visibility for your company’s brand through the Festival’s marketing campaign and at the event
  • Promote your company to diverse audiences - general public, school children, university students, policy makers, professionals, scientists and Government
  • Networking opportunities with leading science journalists

The British Science Festival:

  • Is Europe's longest-established and most media-worthy science event. Typically the Festival hosts over 200 events, with over 350 of the world's leading scientists, social scientists, technologists, engineers and science communicators.
  • The Festival averages 40,000-50,000 attendences each year.
  • With a reach of many millions through the resulting media coverage. Over 100 of the press register for the Festival each year and many travel to report directly from the host city. In 2012 total global opportunities to see or hear about the Festival via print or broadcast outlets totalled: 160,180,498 with a total advertising equivalent ratio of UK print and broadcast coverage of £1,202,210.
