Norwich Science Festival 2019
Organised by The Forum, Norwich, and is a partnership initiative involving many organisations from across the region.
Itʼs a celebration of all things science, from the bugs under our feet to the wonders of
outer space, and is back for the fourth year.
Norwich Science Festival returns this October half-term with nine days of inspiring talks,
spectacular shows and ground-breaking research from the region.
The festival will run 18–26 October 2019, and events already confirmed include childrenʼs
shows Horrible Science and the Science of Roald Dahl, a family show from TV presenter
Marty Jopson, a talk by radio and TV presenter Adam Rutherford, and the science of
Game of Thrones.
Plus, thereʼs plenty of opportunities to get involved, as each day from Saturday 19 October,
The Forum turns into The Explorium – a family-friendly, hands-on science zone with free
activities for all, with themes including food and health, mental health and wellbeing,
zoology and mammals, engineering and technology, and much more.
The Festival is coordinated by The Forum, Norwich, and is a partnership initiative involving
many organisations from across the region. Last year, over 98,750 visits were made to
Science Festival events across the nine days.
