Description

Register now for your free festival pass to let us know you're coming and to ensure that you get all of the latest updates about this year's Lancashire Science Festival, which is taking place on Saturday 1 July at the University of Central Lancashire's Preston Campus.


The Lancashire Science Festival is going to have a new look and feel for 2017, so check out the information below regarding what we’ve changed and why. There's also lots more information about this year's great line up and the festival in general on our website.

Headliner

There will be no outdoor headliner act this year (e.g. the Extreme Sports Battle, Titan the Robot etc such as we have had in previous years), instead there will be lots of fun smaller activities dotted around on the family day of the festival for you to explore. This is because The University of Central Lancashire’s Preston City campus (the home of the Lancashire Science Festival) is undergoing a radical overhaul as part of its Masterplan. This means that there is a lot of building work happening on campus so we are having to fit around this.

Pre-Bookable Workshops

During our family day we will again be running our popular programme of workshops, however this year you will be able to pre-book your place prior to the festival, costing £1 per ticket*. As the workshops have a smaller capacity running them on a first-come-first-served basis, as we did last year, resulted in too many disappointed visitors, and attaching a small fee to the tickets hopes to ensure that everyone who books a place turns up. Tickets will be available to book via the website from Wednesday 31 May.

*All money received from tickets, minus the EventBrite service fee will be donated to the Mental Health Foundation (charity number 801130).

Improved Queue Management

We are sticking with the ticketless system for show entry on our family day, as this meant that we were able to run all shows at full capacity (for the first time) last year. However we have planned an improved queue management system that should mean that you won’t have to wait in a queue if you won’t be able to get in.

Staggered Show Start Times

Following feedback from the 2016 festival, we will be staggering the start times of shows on our family day. So if you do miss out on a place at a show you should still have time to try and get into another one.

Car Parking

Alongside the free car parking that is available on UCLan car parks, we have also arranged discounted parking at the Walker Street car park for just £1.50 for a full day. This car park is just a couple of minutes’ walk away from the main festival site. We are also hoping to increase the number of car park attendants available to help you to get parked quickly and easily.
