Plan your visit

Booking tickets

Many events are bookable and have limited capacity, so early booking is advised to avoid disappointment. There are different ticket agents operating booking for different events. This information can be found on each event.

Concession tickets: These are available, where specified, for events sold via (via our ticketing partner Line-Up), for: children under the age of 16, adults aged 60 or over, students in full-time education, Go4Less card holders, those on Income Support, registered disabled and registered carers. Please bring proof of eligibility to the event. For tickets sold by other venues, e.g. Norwich Playhouse, please see their website for terms and conditions.

Many exhibitions, events and activities at the Norwich Science Festival are FREE. The Forum and our partners have kept prices, to the paid-for events, as low as possible. Ticket income is used to cover the costs of bringing high profile shows and speakers to Norwich and to pay for other Festival events, which are free and open to all.

A Guide to Preparing for Your Visit

We want to make the Norwich Science Festival the best experience for everyone. We have prepared a video and guide, for children and parents of children with autism and Aspergers. We will also have copies of the guide available during the Festival at the information desk. We hope that you will find the guide and video useful, and that you enjoy your visit!
