The Festival started in 2016 after The Forum joined forces with Stuart Hobday (Diss Corn Hall, Norwich Arts Centre, Millennium Dome) to create this celebration of the groundbreaking scientific research from Norwich. It is now a partnership initiative involving many organisations from across the region, coordinated by The Forum, Norwich. Thanks to our many sponsors, partners, funders and patrons.
Norwich Science Festival has grown from inception in 2016 to a nationally recognised Festival that showcases groundbreaking research, champions Norwich as a positive and progressive ‘city of science, and brings the best household names the region.Discover our aims for the Festival
