About Manchester Science Festival

Welcome to Manchester Science Festival 2018, produced by the Science and Industry Museum.

Every October, our Festival creates a place for innovative, surprising and meaningful experiences, where people of all ages can ignite their curiosity in science. Our visitors are at the heart of everything we do, so the Festival team strives to keep the programme inclusive and accessible to everyone.

The greatest strength of our Festival is our unique alliance of partners, who make it the north’s premier cultural celebration of all things related to science and innovation.

Every year we welcome over 130,000 visitors to events around Manchester City Centre and across Greater Manchester. As we celebrate 12 years of Manchester Science Festival, we must also say a huge thank you to our funders and sponsors, whose support makes it all possible.

We look forward to seeing you at the Festival.
