Science Festival 2019

Welcome to Royal Holloway Science Festival. We have run our hugely popular annual Science Open Day for over 20 years, celebrating science and attracting large audiences each year.


We have a thriving science community here at Royal Holloway, with world-class pioneering research, so this is a great opportunity for everyone to come along and discover some of the exciting things that we are up to. At Royal Holloway, it is important for us to engage the next generation in these subjects and make it fun as part of the national celebrations in British Science Week.

Through the range of activities at Royal Holloway Science Festival, we can demonstrate the wide-ranging impact of science and explore the latest technological advances together.

This year’s Science Festival takes place on Saturday 9 March, 10am-4pm
