Welcome from the Festival Director

It’s almost time for Hull’s fifth annual Science Festival on the University campus. This year we’ve partnered up with Science Museum Group, The Yorkshire Fossil Festival, Orsted, RB and Yakult to showcase the role of science, maths and engineering within our culture.

The festival is bigger and better than ever before! We’ve got Discovery Zone where you can immerse yourself in virtual realities, or delve into prehistory with our fossil zone. There is also a host of shows, workshops and demo packer lectures taking place across the campus, which will entertain and educate you about the amazing world of science.

As always all events and lectures are free and open to the public! Entry is by ticket only, so book your free tickets today.

Just as you don’t have to be a musician to enjoy a concert, you don’t have to be a scientist to enjoy our festival. We want to entertain all our visitors with ideas and innovations. During Hull 2017 the festival is about showing you that science and technology is an integral part of our culture.

It should be a cracking festival, please do come along and enjoy and enjoy a weekend of culture for the curious mind!

Professor Mark Lorch
Festival Director, University of Hull
