Lancashire Science Festival Save The Date 28 June – 30 June 2018

The multi-award-winning Lancashire Science Festival is entering its seventh year in 2018. This successful three-day event consistently attracts thousands of visitors from across the North West, with a total reach last year of around 17,000 people. Held at the University of Central Lancashire’s Preston campus, the festival is open to to school groups on Thursday 28 June and Friday 29 June, and on Saturday 30 June we will be opening our doors to the general public.

We are now looking to firm up sponsors and content contributors. We would be delighted if your organisation would consider being one of them. Our past sponsors and contributors have included BAE Systems, Electricity North West and Fort Vale Engineering. Due to thier amazing support, we have been able to continue to offer our main schools and family programme free of charge, allowing us to connect with a wonderfully diverse audience.

Please watch our video from 2017’s festival below, and get in touch to see how you can get involved.
