The British Science Festival is one of Europe's largest science festivals, taking place each September. The Festival is in a different location in the UK each year, bringing the public to the latest in science, technology and engineering. In this week long meeting, jam-packed programme has loads of events for everyone. Each year thousands of people join the British Science Association, the organiser of the Festival, for talks, plays, debates, hands-on activities and more.

This year the Festival is hosted by the University of Surrey in Guildford from 5-10 September 2009 with events taking place across Surrey.
