The Nottingham Festival of Science and Curiosity is a week long festival which brings Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths out from behind closed doors and into the everyday lives of people. The festival is about inviting the people of Nottingham to share not only what they know, but also what they would like to know; it’s about celebrating curiosity, asking questions and taking a leading role in finding out the answers.

The festival will be taking over various city centre venues on Saturday 16 February, including the Central Library, Broadmarsh Shopping Centre, Broadway Cinema, Sneinton Market, Wollaton Hall, Green’s Mill and more.
