Do you want to be part of Manchester Science Festival?

Produced by the Museum of Science and Industry, Manchester Science Festival (MSF) is a creative, playful and surprising science festival taking place across Greater Manchester. It is the largest science festival in England and the North’s premier cultural celebration of all things related to science and innovation.

Dubbed ‘part laboratory, part playground’, MSF exposes over 100,000 visitors to over 200 extraordinary events, ranging from expert talks and workshops to contemporary science exhibitions, debates, comedy and theatre.

Our visitors are at the heart of everything we do and we strive to keep our programme inclusive and accessible to everyone.

The Festival will run from Thursday 19 October – Sunday 29 October 2017.

Applications to be part the 2017 Manchester Science Festival will open in the Spring 2017.
