Cheltenham Science Festival

Cheltenham Festivals operates four world class festival events Jazz, Literature and Music and of course The Times Cheltenham Science Festival. It is the leading event of its type in Europe with over 50,000 visits to the 6-day programme held in June each year. The Festival’s Education team works closely with EDF Energy, who are our Education and Principal Partner, to create its renowned ‘Science for Schools’ programme encompassing dozens of talks, workshops and interactive activities during the Festival.

In addition EDF Energy supports a growing range of outreach programmes across the South West of England and beyond throughout the year. These special projects include: Careering Around, What, Why, How? Lectures and The Big Experiment series. For more information about Cheltenham Festivals Education Programmes please see:
