Lancashire Science Festival 2020

After careful consideration, we have decided to cancel this year’s Lancashire Science Festival due to take place from Thursday 25 – Saturday 27 June.

Following the government measures and the significant impact on everyone across the country, we have decided that the festival could not go ahead.

Click ‘experiments’ above to find links to pre-recorded experiments to watch online or download one of our simple guides to recreate experiments at home.

Next year we celebrate our 10th anniversary and we look forward to welcoming you back to celebrate this fantastic achievement with us.
