About the Festival

How long is a piece of string? What makes the world turn? And why does chocolate taste so good? Nothing is off limits at Cheltenham Science Festival. Every year we are joined by the world’s greatest scientists, futurologists and thought-leaders to help make sense of the world around us.

What's On

We've creatively curated a programme that we hope will spark curiosity! Alongside our ticketed activity this year we will also be welcoming VOICEBOX to join the Festival with a free digital content series as well as hosting lots of free family activities on site. Pop down and see the site in action.

Professor Brian Cox

"I’m an avid fan of Cheltenham Science Festival. It is, without doubt, the premier science Festival in the country because it is supported by pretty much everyone who cares about promoting science in Britain."
