British Science Festival

University of Bradford, Richmond Road, Bradford, Yorkshire, BD7 1DP

The British Science Festival is the longest-standing science festival in the UK, organised by the British Science Association (BSA). It has grown out of the tradition of the annual meetings of the BSA, which were first held in York in 1831. Thereafter, they have been held annually at cities across the UK and further afield. The four-day event brings together scientists from various disciplines to discuss their ground-breaking work and, crucially, engage with the general public.

The 2015 British Science Festival returned to Bradford for a fourth time. and was hosted by the University of Bradford from 7 to 10 September.
