Celebrate the people, stories and ideas at the heart of science this September! 

This year’s British Science Festival, hosted by De Montfort University Leicester (DMU), will be taking over the city between 13-17 September with over 100 FREE events, installations, and activities.

The programme encompasses science in the broadest sense, promising something for everyone. And you don’t need any knowledge of science to enjoy what’s on offer! Spend the whole day, or occupy yourself for just a couple of hours, exploring the city and campus events.

Programme highlights include: ‘The Compass’ a spellbinding installation driven by British research pioneers and the everyday person’s life journey. Created by Illuminos, The Compass represents our shared navigation of knowledge, discovery, and the science that shapes our world. We invite you to explore its interior by day, and marvel at its spectacular exterior by night.

For a spot of stargazing and a glimpse into the world of space and astronomy, become part of the live audience at a recording of the BBC’s much-loved programme ‘The Sky at Night’ – hosted by Maggie Aderin-Pocock, Pete Lawrence and Chris Lintott.

Join us canalside to let off some steam. The Canal & River Trust’s ‘5 ways to wellbeing’ series of activities are rooted in promoting positive mental and physical wellbeing. Hop in a canoe and paddle downstream in ‘Calming canoe journeys’, or perfect your downward dog doing some ‘Paddleboard Yoga’. Namaste.

All events will take place throughout Leicester (in the city centre and on the DMU campus). Events are scheduled throughout the day and into the evening from Tuesday 13 to Saturday 17 September.

All tickets for the British Science Festival are completely free, but spaces are limited so booking is essential for most events. Ticket bookings and the full programme line-up can be found at: https://britishsciencefestival.org/
