COVID-19 Update



In March, we launched the final season of our yearlong Arts & Science programme. Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, many of our upcoming events have been cancelled or postponed in order to protect the health and welfare of audiences, collaborators, students and staff.

We are currently exploring opportunities to deliver some of our scheduled events via alternative platforms – keep an eye on our social media for updates.

The Arts & Science Festival team are now working from home, but you can still get in touch with us at

Look after yourselves and each other, and be safe.
