The 2018 Science Festival is now over. We still have one great event  to look forward to on 7 November 2018 when Robin Ince will be at the Observatory to talk about what it means to be human - from a Comedian's perspective.  Bookings for this event are now open. 

Despite the storms and the rain the events went well and we are grateful to you all for sponsorship, grants, donations, volunteering and all kinds of help.  You can still donate via the Virgin Money Giving website.  You can also support the 2019 againFestival by becoming a Friend (individuals and families) or a sponsor (businesses). Contact us for more information.

The Cafe Scientifique and ad hoc events will continue take place throughout the year.

Provisional dates for the 2019 Festival are Friday 4 October to Sunday 13 October 2019.
