The Festival of Physics

About The Festival of Physics

The Festival of Physics is a celebration of the wonder of science, the power of curiosity and the inventions and discoveries that shape our world and our future. Join the Institute of Physics between 26 – 28 October at Dynamic Earth for a packed three-day programme of scintillating science shows, hands-on workshops and inspiring experiences, plus creative conversations from the domains of music, theatre and art alongside talks and lectures for all ages.

From the edge of the universe to the heart of the atom, from spacetime to stardust, come and play with us.

All family events at the Festival of Physics are free. We want to make the joy and wonder of curiosity and experimentation open to all, so feel free to drop in and explore.

There is a £3 charge for three of the adult programme events which have limited spaces to ensure ticketholders’ attendance. All other adult programme events are free.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Festival of Physics are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
