Edinburgh Science Festival 2021
In 2021, from Saturday 26 June – Sunday 11 July, our Festival will explore the theme One World. In a year that sees the us celebrate the 20th anniversary of the publication of the first draft of the human genome, the 50th year since the invention of email and the floppy disc, the inception of the World food programme and the 60th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s ground-breaking trip into space, we explore how we are all connected… to each other, to Planet Earth and to the wider Universe.
The world is changing and we are changing with it. Our 2021 Festival will see us deliver some events in new formats and spaces. We're keen to innovate in both our planning and delivery to ensure a safe and quality Festival experience for everyone, and are focusing our energy and efforts on doing things differently to achieve this.
