When is the next London Science Festival?
The next festival will run from Wednesday 23 to Wednesday 30 October 2013.
How many people attend the festival and who are they?
In 2011, we had over 30,000 visitors to the festival. Our LSF11 programme was predominantly aimed at school students (KS4 upwards) and adults. Our visitors included scientists, university students, graduates, science communicators, public engagement professionals, journalists, as well as the general public. In 2013, we expect to double visitor numbers to over 60,000.
How do I buy tickets for festival events?
Our full programme will be released in August 2013. Tickets for paying events can be purchased online using a credit or debit card. Many of our events are also free of charge, and are ticketed or drop-in depending on the nature of the event and the host venue.
What makes London Science Festival different from other science festivals?
London has unrivalled centres of scientific and cultural research, many sites of historical importance, and is the most international and populous city in Europe. This provides the Festival, and its partners, with a unique platform to communicate and engage the public.
Who are the festival partners?
In 2011, we worked with leading science and art institutions, including: The Science Museum, The Natural History Museum, Shakespeare’s Globe, The Royal Albert Hall, Royal Observatory Greenwich, University College London, King’s College London, CERN, The British Science Association (Science London), The Royal Society of Chemistry, The Science Council, The Arts Catalyst, GV Art Gallery, The Royal College of Pathologists, The British Pharmacological Society, BBC Radio 4 and London College of Fashion.
We will be working with many of these partners again in 2013, and developing new partnerships which fit our key curatorial themes for LSF13 -- Engineering, Technology, and Science & London.
