Manchester Science Festival returns from Friday 12 – Sunday 21 February 2021 with a programme of free online talks, exhibitions, debates and activities that explore our changing climate and ideas for a better world.

Hear from scientists and experts at the forefront of the fight against climate change, ask your most pressing questions to those campaigning for a better world and discover practical ways you can make a difference. Explore the programme and book your free tickets for our digital events now.

Although our temporary closure due to coronavirus restrictions means the festival will look and feel different this year, its programme of digital events will make Manchester Science Festival an event not to be missed. It will provide fun and inspiring experiences to enjoy from the comfort of your own home. 

We will continue to add events and activities across the coming weeks and still hope to host some exciting festival events at the Science and Industry Museum when we reopen. Sign up to our newsletter to be the first to find out more.
