Run an event

Manchester Science Festival celebrates the extraordinary in science – and we’re always seeking innovative workshops, exhibitions, debates, performances and theatre shows to add to our diverse programme.

Since our launch in 2007, our aim has been to showcase new ideas and exciting insights into science, technology, engineering and maths, while remaining inclusive and accessible to people of all ages and knowledge levels.

Manchester Science Festival 2017 saw us focusing on surprising, meaningful science that we hope will inspire and encourage scientists and inventors of the future, as well as providing fantastic entertainment for adult visitors too. Check out the 2017 brochure to get a flavour for our programme.

Every year, we invite individuals and organisations, artists and scientists and anyone interested in being part of the Festival to submit a proposal for their event or project idea. Applications to be part of Manchester Science Festival 2018 will open in March 2018. If you have questions in the meantime, get in touch with our Festival team.
