The 33rd Orkney International Science Festival will return this year with another packed programme.

The Festival has over the years developed a distinctive programme, with family activities, music and food and drink events amongst the varied talks by speakers.

For 2023 there will be events indoors, outdoors and online. The programme is currently being finalised but funding from the National Lottery means up to ten events will be livestreamed to audiences around the world. All the remaining events will also be filmed and available on the festival's YouTube channel.

For more information visit the official website. The Festival also has a very lively online magazine of science and exploration.

You can also find out more by following the festival on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.
