Do you want to be part of Manchester Science Festival?

Produced by the Museum of Science and Industry, Manchester Science Festival is a creative, playful and surprising science festival taking place across Greater Manchester every October. We are 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’, Manchester Science Festival welcomes more than 100,000 visitors to over 100 extraordinary events, from immersive art installations and science raps, to robot comedy shows and numerical orchestral performances.

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

Manchester Science Festival 2018 will run from Thursday 18 October – Sunday 28 October.
