Brighton Science Festival

Brighton Science Festival 2018

A combination of more government cuts and the crisis in business means we are in jeopardy again.*  In the last two years we have developed an integrated science programme, which is under threat:

  • We now travel to YOUTH CLUBS AND COMMUNITY CENTRES around Sussex, adding a taste of creative, practical and fun science to young people’s lives.
  • We tour the POCKET SCIENCE FUNFAIR to the same areas – pulling in the same kids plus their families, friends and neighbours.
  • We attract all these to Brighton for the FESTIVAL in February.
  • … and BIG SCIENCE, the adult section of the Festival, now in October. 

We keep ticket prices as low as possible, so everyone can afford to come. But of course there are costs, (read the report HERE). 

Please help. Brighton Science Festival is a charity. We need £5,000. Give whatever you can: £10, £20, £50 or more. 
To say thank you, we’ll send you some of our special, scientific Christmas cards to delight and baffle your family and friends this festive season.

Brighton Science Festival will run from 10th – 18th February 2018. We’re putting the programme together right now – if you’ve got an idea, an event, a suggestion, or you want to get involved, please do get in touch

Look out for more announcements closer to the time – in the meantime, take a look at our video of some of the highlights of Brighton Science Festival 2017:


Take a look at our video of Pocket Science taking over the giant geodesic dome at the Elderflower Fields festival which we filled with people, entertainment, and fun. Oh, and some science as well.



Arotatorfter bringing some of the world’s best science to Brighton for two weeks, the mission now is to take some out to the rest of Sussex. We roam Sussex and further afield, visiting youth clubs, scout huts, community centres, bus shelters, anywhere, making sure everyone has access to as much science as possible. Why? Because science is cool. I mean, sometimes -273.15º celsius.

Algull_gif_resizethough the bulk of Brighton Science Festival takes place in February, and we’ve recently widened our horizons to Autumn, we’re also constantly on tour – visiting schools and bringing science, education, and most importantly fun to as many educational establishments as we possibly can. If you’d like Brighton Science Festival to come to a school near you, please do get in touch and let us know.
