About

The University of Birmingham’s Arts & Science Festival is a week-long celebration of research, culture and collaboration across campus and beyond. Each year artists, academics and university partners deliver a programme of concerts, exhibitions, screenings, talks and workshops in response to a festival theme.

Arts & Science Festival is an opportunity for curious minds to delve into new thinking from leading academics. The festival overlooks the traditional division between arts and science; each discipline can inform the other, sparking debate and new understanding about the rich world in which we live.

Fuel your interests, exercise your curiosity, and navigate your way through the festival programme with verve!


The University of Birmingham is home to a diverse cultural offer, which includes public museums, galleries, archives, libraries and cultural venues. Our cultural collections and venues deliver innovative and high quality research, teaching and public engagement. Together they present a diverse range of events and performances throughout the year.

Arts & Science Festival is conceived and developed by the Cultural Engagement team at the University of Birmingham.
Design is by An Endless Supply.
