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, for: children under the age of 16, adults aged 60 or over, students in full-time education, Go4Less card holders, those on Income Support and registered disabled. 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.
