Lancashire Science Festival 2018

Lancashire Science Festival is back with a bang for 2018. You can look forward to another action-packed fun fest showcasing the wonders of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and more. Prepare to be amazed!

Our three-day extravaganza will be taking place from Thursday 28 June to Saturday 30 June on the University of Central Lancashire’s Preston Campus. Alongside this we’ll be unveiling a series of exciting Fringe events.

On Thursday 28 June and Friday 29 June we will be welcoming thousands of children from primary schools across the region.

Then on Saturday 30 June we’ll be hosting our Family Day where we open our doors to the general public.

As ever we are delighted to offer our main schools and family programme free of charge.

Take a look at some of the awesome sessions and activities we’ve lined up for this year’s festival…
