If you’ve been to the Cheltenham Science Festival over the last few years you’ll have noticed a big change. In just 3 years the Festival has doubled in size, with almost 40,000 people engaging with Science last year.

This amazing growth has only been possible with the support of our sponsors and donors, allowing us to create a wide variety of events, free activities and experiences that inspire and challenge our audiences and speakers alike.

We hope that you share our sense of achievement when you visit the Festival and see first-hand how your gifts help.

• Every one of the 6,000 schoolchildren who will be taking part in our education programme at the Festival has been subsidised by our supporters.

• Our free activity areas such as Area 42 and the Discover Zone give everyone the opportunity to interact and get hands on with science. 14,000 people showed their appreciation and interest by visiting last year.

• And over 200 events involving both internationally recognised speakers and emerging scientists would simply not be possible without our sponsors and donors.

We set out to achieve this each year at every Festival, with high quality events featuring leading and up-and-coming speakers and performers, free activities and education projects at the very core of our work.

We are extremely grateful for the gifts and donations we receive from our supporters. If you are booking tickets for any of our Festivals over the coming months then please do consider making a donation; it really does make an impact on our work.
