Brighton Science Festival

Brighton Science Festival

The Pocket Science Funfair – all the fun of the fair, plus all the buzz of science.

On its latest outing the funfair with a twist celebrates the twentieth anniversary of Harry Potter by dealing out a little magic of our own. And why stop at Potter? We have special effects from The Lord of the Rings and from Star Wars. Plus loads of other scientific treats and tricks: a full fairground’s worth of fun!

Friday 18th August – The Synergy Centre, 78 West Street, Brighton, BN1 2RA. 10.30am – 4.30pm.
Facebook event

Tickets are £4 for ages 7+, £14 for a family of 4, Under 7s free.
Tickets are no longer available online but will also be available on the door.  

This is a drop-in event – arrive any time, but leave at least an hour (ideally two) to make sure you get to see and do everything!




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



After 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.

Although 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.
