Sidmouth Science Festival: 3 - 15 October 2017

Our Festivals depend on the generosity of donors and on grants. We make every effort not to charge for events so that they are accessible to all. If you wish to donate please click on our Virgin Money Giving link. 

Our 2016 photo albums are available for you to view by clicking on the link and our videos available on our Youtube Channel. For our 2016 Festival Report please click on the link.

We look forward to seeing you again in October when the Festival will kick off with Quiz at the Cricket Club on 29 September and a weather & music event "Seascape" on Saturday 7 October 2017! In the meantime, watch this space for science related activities in Sidmouth, including the monthly Cafe Scientifique and ad hoc events.

The Festival theme will continue as “Science in our Lives” to reflect how important the STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Maths and Engineering) are to everything we do nowadays.

We aim to promote curiosity in the young, to inspire them to consider a STEM career in a rapidly changing employment market, in addition to encouraging self-confessed nonscientists to engage with science in fun ways, including art, drama and music and hands-on activities. We also provide talks by experts in their fields for those looking for something more technically challenging.
