Full programme announced for its 21st year!

Cheltenham Science Festival is delighted to announce 2023’s unmissable programme, as it celebrates its 21st birthday with 138 events with 270 of the best scientists, thinkers, writers and creators, promising something for everyone – nothing is off limits!

From Tuesday 6 to Sunday 11 June Cheltenham once again plays host to the Festival Village, where guests will be exposed to the latest thinking about what makes us tick and continues its commitment to inspiring real-world action through its signature theme of ‘Be the Change’. The Festival features three Interactive Zones, where visitors can get hands-on with science, and The Week Junior’s Science and Nature Trail across the site.

Speakers from a diverse range of professions will appear focusing on everything from mental wellbeing to social change and human behaviours including Claudia Hammond; Chris van Tulleken; Hana Walker-Brown; Sophia Kaur Badhan; and AI Guest Curator, AIDA.

To celebrate the festival’s 21st year, there will be a FREE Friday night late for over 18s. Other highlights include exploring the biggest issues of our time at VOICEBOX, and free comedy on the Apollo Stage. Visitors can also enjoy the most hilariously revolting parts of science at Rude Science and joining in the chaos at Robo Bingo.

Cheltenham Science Festival: 6-11 JUNE 2023
