Manchester Science Festival 2017

Manchester Science Festival is a creative, playful and surprising celebration of science.

It is the largest science festival in England and the 2017 Festival will take place from Thursday 19 – Sunday 29 October. The festival is produced by the Museum of Science and Industry.

Every October, Manchester Science Festival creates a place for innovative, surprising and meaningful experiences, where people of all ages can ignite their curiosity in science. Visitors are at the heart of the festival, so the team strives to keep the programme inclusive and accessible to everyone.

2016 marked their 10th birthday and the end of Manchester’s year-long role as European City of Science. 2017 is the 11th year of Manchester Science Festival and they're celebrating with 11 days of bold, creative and thought-provoking science events across Greater Manchester.

The greatest strength of the Festival is the unique alliance of partners, who make it the north’s premier cultural celebration of all things related to science and innovation.

This year's headline events include Tape, Robots and Tomorrow's World.
