Manchester Science Festival 2017

Manchester Science Festival is a creative, playful and surprising celebration of science.
It is the largest science festival in England and the 2017 Festival will take place from Thursday 19 – Sunday 29 October.

Every October, the Festival creates a place for innovative, surprising and meaningful experiences, where people of all ages can ignite their curiosity in science. Our visitors are at the heart of everything it does, so the Festival team strive to keep the programme inclusive and accessible to everyone.

Headline events include:

Tape: Is your spidey sense tingling? That’ll be because award-winning artists Numen/For Use have transformed the 1830 Warehouse into a giant spider’s web made from sticky tape. Find out more


Robots: Get close to a unique collection of over 100 robots, from a 17th century dancing wine goblet and an animatronic baby, to Maria from 1927 film classic Metropolis and a news-reading android from Japan. Go behind the scenes and glimpse recent developments in robotic research, and discover how robots are being built to resemble us, interact with us and think like us. Find out more

Tomorrow’s World Live: Tomorrow’s World was the show that introduced the nation to mobile phones and laser eye surgery – and now it’s returned as a new live and digital interactive vision of the future. Find out more
