Sidmouth Science Festival: 7 - 16 October 2016


The theme of the Festival will be 'Science in our Lives'.


This year’s programme should be read in conjunction with our newly updated website (from early September) where you can find more up to date information and easily reserve places for events.

Welcome to the fifth Sidmouth Science Festival brought to you by a team of volunteers from the Vision Group for Sidmouth (VGS), part of the Transition Town Movement. 

With so many technical issues being faced by society we believe that our communities will make better decisions if they have a deeper understanding of the underlying science and technology. We aim to make people aware of how the STEM subjects (science, technology engineering and maths) play a part in what we take for granted in everyday life. 

We are very pleased to announce that the Sidmouth Science Festival is now a registered charity - no. 1168115
