The British Science Association and De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) are pleased to announce that the British Science Festival in 2022 will take place in the city of Leicester across five days next September.
Celebrating the 191st anniversary of the Festival, and working in partnership with the University, the British Science Association will bring the flagship event to the region for the first time since 2002. The British Science Festival is one of Europe’s longest-established science festivals, which each year travels to a different part of the UK. It brings a vast array of events, performances and installations with a scientific twist, celebrating the people, stories and ideas at the heart of science.
Joining forces with DMU and other organisations across the East Midlands region and beyond, the British Science Festival will shine a light on cutting-edge science, as well as the more practical impacts research and innovation have on people’s daily lives.
The Festival will be held between Tuesday 13 and Saturday 17 September 2022, with events being held on the University’s campus, as well as at venues across the city, offering over 100 free activities for nearby residents.
