London Science Festival was founded with the mission to engage the public in all things scientific, from natural science to science in its most cultural and interdisciplinary contexts. We collaborate with our partners to open science up to those who fund it, create forums for debate, encourage audiences of all ages to pursue careers in science and engineering, promote innovation – and to allow individuals’ access to research which they may use to make informed lifestyle choices.
The next festival, London Science Festival 2014 (LSF14), will run from Wednesday 12 to Wednesday 19 November 2014.
In 2011 and 2013, we averaged over 30,000 visitors to the festival. In 2014, we expect this to increase significantly.
Our full programme will be released in August 2014, and tickets for paying events can be purchased online using a credit or debit card. Many of our events are also free of charge, and are ticketed or drop-in depending on the nature of the event and the host venue.
London has unrivalled centres of scientific and cultural research, many sites of historical importance, and is the most international and populous city in Europe. This provides the Festival, and its partners, with a unique platform to communicate and engage the public.
In 2011 and 2013, we worked with leading science and art institutions in London, the UK and Europe, including:
We will be working with many of these partners again in 2014, and we’re seeking new partnerships which fit our key curatorial themes (Life, and Science & London) for LSF14.
We actively seek out programming partners with whom we wish to work. Individuals and organisations can also apply to run events as part of our programme through our open application process. To apply, complete the LSF14 open application form and submit by 11.59pm on Wednesday 30 April 2014.
Events which bring something unique and exclusive to LSF14 will be given priority in our programme; if your event is not new, tell us what is unique about your proposal for LSF14.
