Royal Norfolk Show 2019

Norwich Science Festival at Royal Norfolk Show

Norwich Science Festival comes to the Discovery Zone at the Royal Norfolk Show with a huge selection of hands-on, messy and fun learning activities for all ages and interests.

The Food and Farming Discovery Trust have collaborated with Norwich Science Festival to put on this year’s Discovery Zone.

Join local scientists to learn about cuddly microbes, bird migration, rockets, pink pigeons, beach conservation, modern farming, animal husbandry and much more.

Plus polish up your scientific and engineering skills by model making, DNA detecting, nest building, solving riddles, experimenting with chemicals and food and by battling with bacteria.

All the activities and stands are free of charge and there are also free workshops and entertainment on the central Discovery Zone stage. All events and timings are subject to change.
