Described by Professor Lord Robert Winston as "unquestionably the leading science festival in the country", The Times Cheltenham Science Festival is a five-day celebration of science – and with intimate venues and a unique format it’s a rare opportunity for policy makers, research funders, the media and the general public to come face-to-face with the world’s leading scientists and thinkers.
Physicist and presenter Brian Cox and 'chef of the decade' Heston Blumenthal are Guest Directors, and have helped shape a programme with over 100 thought-provoking and innovative events: exploring everything from the natural world and health secrets to the technological wizardry that will shape tomorrow’s world.
Top scientists will examine the latest medical technology, debate the future of our climate, explore the next intelligent methods of travel, question the things that affect all our lives – and lots more!
The Times Cheltenham Science Festival is part of Cheltenham Festivals.
With combined ticket sales of well over 150,000 the Jazz, Science, Music and Literature Festivals put Cheltenham firmly on the cultural map.
Mainly ticketed events, but also ahuge free exhibition space in the Town Hall with lots of hands-on activities, called the Discover Zone!
