Join us for the second Norwich Science Festival 21-29 October 2017 – your chance to explore the wonders of the universe, meet the scientists whose research has changed our world and debate some big questions with some big-thinkers.
Enjoy nine days of inspirational exhibitions, sensational shows and an abundance of hands-on science and engineering activities for all ages and all levels of knowledge.
Tickets are now on sale, via norwichsciencefestival.co.uk, including for headline talks including Helen Sharman – Britain’s First Astronaut, and shows from TV/radio scientists and celebrities Ben Garrod, Mark Thompson, Adam Rutherford, Lizzie Daly, Nicholas Crane and Johnny Ball.
There are also plenty of free, hands-on family activities during the Festival, with special themed days at The Forum, kicking off with a look at stars and space in Astronomy Day on 21 October, plus other days dedicated to physics, engineering and maths, chemistry, biology, nature and the environment, and food and agriculture.
Plus, there’s a dedicated Learning Programme too – activities, talks and workshops run 16-20 October, for schools, colleges, home-educated learners and youth groups.
Norwich Science Festival is a celebration of the ground-breaking scientific research associated with the city. It is a partnership initiative involving many organisations from across the region, coordinated by The Forum, with headline sponsorship from Anglian Water, and takes place in multiple venues across Norwich.
