This year the Festival went to Hull, and there was a huge range of events and activities hosted, including yoga sessions, museum lates, lively discussions, and even a robot petting zoo

The Festival will be in Coventry from 10-13 September 2019, hosted by the University of Warwick. Researchers from any institution are welcome to apply, so do!

Open Call for proposals

The BSA are looking for proposals from across the scientific spectrum and beyond. Festival content should be aimed at non-specialist adults (i.e. aged 16+) with a broad interest in science. Creative formats and drop-in activities are welcomed.

Award Lectures - are you, or do you know, a promising early career researcher?

Every year the BSA ask for nominations for the seven Award Lectureships available to promising early career academics, skilled at engaging people with their research.

The selected candidates will have the opportunity to present their winning Award Lecture at the 2019 Festival.

Everyone is encouraged to get in touch to discuss their nomination prior to submission.
