Brighton Science Festival

Appeal 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. 

GIFT AID – if you are a UK taxpayer, we can claim Gift Aid on your donation which means the government help us out with an extra 25% of your donation. If you want to help us claim Gift Aid, please complete this form and email it back to us at Thanks! 

*After Brexit, the government and businesses will be ever so eager to find and grow talent here in the UK. We will be ready, alongside the Universities of Sussex and Brighton, who back us up with their speakers, activities, spaces and funding. Brighton and Hove City Council fund us as far as they can, and Sussex businesses as far as they are allowed. But right now we rely on you.
