What membership involves

Membership to the UK Science Festivals Network provides a way for diverse festivals to unite as a professional community, which all members can benefit from and participate in.

  • Members are invited to attend regular meetings across the country to build relationships, share best practice and participate in a national conversation about shaping the future of science festivals in the UK.
  • Each year the Network agrees on a measure to improve and standardise our approach to evaluation. To become and remain a member, festivals must agree to collect and annually share this data with the Network and other members.
  • Membership to the UK Science Festivals Network is free and open to all organisers of a festival or event with science content.
  • All members remain independently organised science festivals and can terminate their membership at any time.
