The UK Science Festivals Network serves to unite, celebrate and develop science festivals in the UK.

The Network aims to build relationships with those involved in the organisation of science festivals and other sectors, to drive up attendance and innovation.


Bringing science festivals together to share knowledge, experience and contacts. The Network facilitates partnerships and collaboration through our meetings and projects.


We are a strong voice for science festivals where it counts: with funding bodies, decision-makers, and in public. We advocate for funding and run projects to distribute creative content.


We believe that science festivals are an exciting and diverse form of interaction and we work to support large and small festivals to grow and diversify their audience.
