About Manchester Science Festival

Welcome to Manchester Science Festival 2017,  produced by the Museum of Science and Industry.

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.

2016 marked our 10th birthday and the end of Manchester’s year-long role as European City of Science. 2017 is the 11th year of Manchester Science Festival and we’re celebrating with 11 days of bold, creative and thought-provoking science events across Greater Manchester.

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.

As we celebrate 11 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.
