Whether you are looking for insights into the latest in scientific thinking and innovation, to debate your theories and opinions with the experts, to inspire a budding young scientist or for family entertainment to kick-start the summer holidays with a bang, the Wrexham Science Festival is sure to have something to suit. Now in its 14th year, the Festival promises nine days packed full of FREE workshops, demonstrations, shows, lectures and much more.

This year the festival is running throughout the first week of the school summer holidays, so there will be plenty to keep the kids occupied and get the summer holidays off to a bang, as well as events of a more grown-up variety.

Highlights include: 

  • Wildlife presenter Kate Humble in conversation with Adam Walton from BBC Radio Wales' Science Café
  • Activities for all the family, from shows exploring the science behind Doctor Who and superhumans, to Stone Age archaeology and LEGO® Robotics workshops
  • Events of a more grown-up variety, including an interactive workshop exploring the Chemistry of Cocktails, and the return of our popular Science Pub Quiz
  • Science with a comedy twist - Helen Keen returns with her latest show Robot Woman of the future, and we welcome stand-up mathematician Matt Parker with his unique take on Freaky Probability
  • Talks and lectures exploring the world of science, from animal welfare and Captain Scott's Antarctic expedition, to Thomas Telford and the future of the internet

Perfect for getting everyone excited about science!
