Science Festival

Welcome to Royal Holloway Science Festival. We have run our hugely popular annual Science Open Day for over 25 years, celebrating science and attracting large audiences each year.

NEW: update on 5 March 2020

Our Science Festival on Saturday 7 March has been cancelled. This is a precaution, after the government has today moved to 'delay' phase measures to slow the spread of coronavirus. At this time, all other activity at Royal Holloway continues as normal.


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 special day really does have something to offer for all ages and will leave you inspired!

All events are free and there's something to suit all ages - bring your friends and families along to this popular community event.



In March 2019, around 6,000 visitors joined us for an exciting day of science discovery. Watch some of the highlights from 2019 in our film below:
