Manchester Science Festival returns from Friday 23 October – Sunday 1 November 2020 and we are looking to collaborate with partners to curate this year’s programme, which will centre on the most urgent issue of our time: climate.

If you're passionate about science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) and have an idea for an event, activity or installation that could help to educate, inspire or entertain our audiences, we'd love to hear from you.

The deadline for submissions has been extended to Monday 30 March.

Everything you need to know about the Festival, how to get involved and what you can expect from us throughout the process is all in our Manchester Science Festival 2020 Event Organiser Pack.

If you have any questions about the Festival or working with us, please email us at
