Support us

We are driven by a mission to inspire, inform and entertain communities across Swindon and the UK.

Now heading into our fifth year, our goal is to engage 25,000 festival visitors by 2024 – as well as involving thousands more through town centre activity and outreach.

This is only possible with the support of our donors, partners, funders, exhibitors and volunteers.

STEM to STEAM

In an increasingly robotised world, the need for human creativity, humanity and positive multidisciplinary collaborations has rarely felt more important. The role that the arts play, including in connecting people with science, technology, engineering and maths is essential. I look forward to visiting the Festival of Tomorrow, discovering & exploring developments. I congratulate Rod Hebden and the team in bringing this Festival to life.

So many young female scientists!

It was amazing to see so many young female scientists .Every person we spoke to had lots of time for my children (6, 5 and 2), spoke to them and they left inspired and wanting to be scientists.

100% success!

The main reason we came was to show our children how interesting and entertaining science can be. The event succeeded 100% in doing this.
