Futures

FUTURES is a FREE festival of discovery taking place in the South West across venues in Bath, Bristol, Cornwall, Devon, Exeter and Plymouth and online this Autumn.

The festival is a unique opportunity to find out more about the innovative and world-class research taking place at universities across the South West

With something for every age, FUTURES brings science, culture and research to life in new and exciting ways. There are plenty of events to experience, including late-night museum openings, hands-on activities, exhibitions, storytelling, comedy nights, talks, quizzes, radio shows and much more!

 

Events

Some events are ticketed, some are drop-in, but all are completely FREE.

The programme includes a range of online activities and in-person events at venues across the South West. With storytelling, talks, quizzes and comedy all exploring the worlds of science, culture and research, there is something for everyone at this year’s FUTURES.
