British Science Festival September 2019


The British Science Festival is one of Europe’s longest-established science festivals, which each year travels to a new part of the UK, bringing a vast array of events, performances and installations with a scientific twist. Working in partnership with the University of Warwick, one of the UK’s leading research universities, the British Science Association will bring the four-day event to the region for the first time in its 188-year history.

The British Science Festival Coventry & Warwickshire 2019, will take place between Tuesday 10 and Friday 13 September 2019, and will feature a diverse programme of talks, debates, performances and activities on campus at the University of Warwick and around the city of Coventry. This will be immediately followed by a one-day family festival on Saturday 14 September, featuring a range of activities and events to suit young children and families, which will be created by the University of Warwick together with local partners. More information about the timetable of events to follow soon...
