British Science Festival 2017

Tuesday 5 September sees the launch of this festival that is SO much more than it sounds – the city of Brighton is host to this year’s event, with over 150 free events asking the big questions and featuring names such as Lauren Laverne and Professor Jim Al-Khalili. Not to be missed!

Co-hosted by the universities of Brighton and Sussex, the festival has over 150 free events spanning numerous subjects including: health, the arts, space, the environment and more.

The Festival even has its own beer, being brewed at the ‘North Laine Brewhouse: getting buzzed’ event, where, as well as enjoying a tipple, you can discover what it’s like to be a bee tracking your way back to its hive in a unique gaming experience.

Hear from scientists at ‘Treating leukaemia: the cell therapy revolution’ as they explain the therapies revolutionising the treatment of Leukaemia and how actually, we might hold the key to our own cure.

Fmous faces include presenter Dr Giles Yeo and Steve Crabtree, the editor of BBC’s ‘Horizon’ as they open a discussion about the concept of clean eating, as well as award-winning choreographer Wayne McGregor screening of his unique and tenacious, ‘Atomos’.

Brighton arts staff contributing to the event include Professor Kelly Snook and Charlie Hooker.
