Support the festival

Manchester Science Festival simply couldn't exist without the support we receive from our remarkable sponsors, partners and friends, all of whom help us create a wealth of fantastic science experiences.

We're dedicated to engaging our visitors in surprising, meaningful science through more than 100 events, most of which are free. This means the Festival is accessible and inspiring to people of all ages and backgrounds, and we're especially keen to encourage the scientists and inventors of the future through demonstrating how ideas can change the world.

Produced by the Science and Industry Museum, Manchester Science Festival has charitable status* and you can help us continue producing our world-class programme of activities in one of the following ways:
