The Festival depends on the generosity of grants and donations. We made the decision not to charge for most events because we want the events to be accessible to the whole community.

If you wish to donate please click on the link on the Peoplesfundraising page, which will take you to the Sidmouth Science Festival page on their website. There are various donating options on that page for you. We are no longer able to use Virgin Money Giving due to them ceasing their activity at the end of November 2021.

The Festival has also registered with Amazon Smile ( and EasyFundraising ( if you wish to use their charity donations options while you shop!

We do thank you for your generosity in advance.
