    Norwich Science Festival

    Norwich Science Festival is your chance to explore the wonders of the universe, get hands-on and messy with science, meet the scientists whose research has changed our world and debate some big questions with some big-thinkers.

    The next Norwich Science Festival takes place 18–26 October 2019.

    Since the first Norwich Science Festival in 2016, visitors have enjoyed inspirational exhibitions, sensational shows and an abundance of hand-on science activities for all ages and all levels of knowledge. Each year there is also a dedicated learning programme for schools, youth groups and home educators, which runs 14–16 October in 2019.

    Norwich Science Festival is a celebration of the ground breaking scientific research associated with the city, and is a partnership initiative involving many organisations from across the region, coordinated by The Forum Trust. Thanks to 2018 headline sponsor Anglian Water, as well as the many sponsorspartners and funders.
