This year's festival will be taking place in March at Abingdon's Market Place.

The ATOM Festival is back for 2023, but in March not June!

Post-Covid, the ATOM 2023 festival will be a shorter festival than usual. There are some opportunities for participation in public engagement events on Saturday March 11th at the Science Market, with outdoor space available. The usual indoor Family Science Fair will not be going ahead this year.

The ATOM Science Market will take place on Saturday 11th March 2023, 10am - 3pm on Abingdon's Market Place and they will provide a gazebo, tables and chairs for exhibitors wishing to have a stand.

The festival is free to attend, and they also have various talks and a film showing throughout the day in other locations about the town centre, so are planning to have some science buskers and a giant bubble performer to attract people to all the spaces and bring attention to the event.
