Spot our bus adverts and win Festival tickets!

The 2016 Edinburgh International Science Festival is drawing nearer and we’ve teamed up with Lothian Buses to give you the chance of winning tickets to a Science Festival event and bus tickets to take you there!

All you have to do to enter our competition is spot one of our Science Festival adverts on a Lothian Buses bus and get in touch via social media to tell us where you spotted it. If you do, you could be in with a chance of wining a pair of tickets to either our Science Festival Lates opening party or a pair of tickets to one of our Science in the Spotlight shows, Uncanny Valley and Lost at Sea, developed with support from the Scottish Government’s Edinburgh Festivals Expo Fund. Lothian Buses are also providing free bus travel so you can leave the car at home.

From 26 March – 10 April we’re venturing forth to explore how science, technology, engineering and design have the potential to improve the world we live in and the way we live within it.

We’re the UK’s largest science festival with over 270 events for families and adults. Our vibrant and varied programme includes everything from fun family days out to talks and discussions from pioneering thinkers. Family festivalgoers can enjoy six floors of sensational science at City Art Centre, world class theatre at Summerhall and a host of hands-on activities and more at our partner venues across Edinburgh. Our exciting adult programme of discussions, workshops, performances, screenings, special events and exhibitions feature everything from science themed parties to experimental food events creating unforgettable festival experiences.

So keep your eyes peeled and let us know where you spot our Science Festival adverts by Friday 4 March and you could be our winner!
