Ideas that go BANG!

Find out what makes the world go round, in more ways than one at this  annual festival that takes place at Otley Courthouse.

The popular Otley Science Festival was founded by in 2008 by BBC One Show scientist Marty Jopson (pictured) and members of the management committee of the Otley Courthouse arts and crafts resource centre. The first festival proved to be a huge success and 2017 will see the tenth anniversary of this event, which has amongst others, Professor Robert Winston and Professor Monica Grady in the line-up.

The popularity of science as a school subject has waned over the last few decades but the Otley Science Festival aims to prove that science can be fun as well as educational.

The programme for the week is highly varied and includes music and art in addition to the science programme. The festival is planned to have something for all the family and features many fun-packed, hands-on activities.

Date: Monday 6th to Saturday 11th November 2017
