Date for your diaries! - Our next Festival is 11-18 February 2023

Take Part

School students at Norwich Science Festival 2016

With such huge enthusiasm for science in Norwich, we work with like-minded partners, venues and sponsors to deliver Norwich Science Festival every year, and the event is now firmly established in the city’s annual events calendar. Each year, the Festival is enjoyed by thousands of attendees (137,000 visits in 2019).

Norwich Science Festival will return on 11-18 February 2023. We are looking for event partners and contributors to deliver engaging and inspiring content for the Festival. Whether you are an experienced science communicator or want to dabble for the first time, if you have a passion for communicating and inspiring others to engage with science, we’d love to hear from you. You do not need to be a scientist or researcher; you may be an artist, writer or performer who can use your skills to inspire and educate others. 

If you would like to join us to deliver a talk, workshop, activity stand in our Explorium (The Forum's Atrium) or anything else that you think our audiences would love to see, the first step is to read our Contributor Submissions Pack and then submit an Expression of Interest form below.  

The first round of submissions has now closed. The second round of submissions is now open and runs until 31 July. 

Fill in our Expression of Interest Form to apply to be part of the Festival.
