After pausing in 2019, we are delighted that Manchester Science Festival is returning from Friday 23 October – Sunday 1 November with a renewed focus.
The Festival will now take place every two years, ensuring we can offer you the most innovative, playful and meaningful experiences possible. We will also take full advantage of the Science and Industry Museum's seven-acre, city-centre footprint by making it the hub of events and activities.
Witness some of science's most cutting-edge developments in the fight against climate change, get hands-on with new technology and connect with leading voices to explore ideas that can help shape our future.
From live debates to art commissions, immersive experiences to outdoor events and lots of opportunities to play, our packed events programme will inform, engage and ignite curiosity about our climate, while broadening everyone's enjoyment of science.
Our changing climate is a pressing, global challenge, and we're proud that this year's Festival will help to drive forward conversations about the issue.
