About The Festival

Cardiff Science Festival takes over Wales’ capital to inspire and educate. We showcase science, technology, engineering and maths, integrating them into the capital city of Wales. The four-day festival spreads throughout Cardiff’s libraries, cafes, bars and streets, with hidden events for your to discover.

Our aim is to celebrate science, technology, engineering and maths, and how they affect our every day lives. We bring science to you, with a range of events that are guaranteed to captivate and teach you something new.

Cardiff is a hub for science research and world-renowned science communicators. By following our map around the city, you can learn something new from the best researchers and communicators, right on your doorstep.


The organising Committee of the Cardiff Science Festival consists of a team of volunteers, based in South Wales. Our role is to schedule events, promote the festival and organise volunteers to help out. The organising committee consists of Matthew Allen, Abigail Ashton, Alice Gray, Sri Ponnuswamy, Deborah Syrop and Emma Yhnell.
