Sponsors Anglian Water at NSF 2019

Get Involved

With such huge enthusiasm for science in Norwich, we work with partners, venues and sponsors to deliver Norwich Science Festival each year, and the Festival is now firmly established in the city’s annual events calendar.

2019 NSF headline stats

Each year, the Festival’s audience grows and for 2019 we had 137,000 visits.

We are now planning for the 2020 Festival. Get in touch if you would like to be involved as a sponsor, partner or venue. We’d love to hear from you!

Our aims:

  1. To showcase and champion Norwich as a positive and progressive ‘city of science’.
  2. To spark curiosity and inspire a life-long interest in science, to increase knowledge and to develop the general public’s greater understanding of the importance of scientific research to their everyday lives.
  3. To engage with new audiences, specifically those from communities who have low science capital and do not currently engage with the Festival.
  4. To build sustainable and creative relationships with partners and collaborators to deliver economic, social and environmental benefits to all.
  5. To portray an extensive range of scientific research, with a particular focus on local research.
  6. To provide a platform for scientists to develop their public engagement skills and communicate their research to the general public.
  7. To showcase and celebrate the full diversity of people working in science.
  8. To encourage creativity and cross-genre activities between the arts and science.
  9. To promote positive behavioural change from our visitors to benefit their health and the environment.
