The programme for the 2014 Imperial Festival has been confirmed and is available online at

With just two weeks to go until this year’s Imperial Festival kicks off, now is a great time to start planning which of the myriad of attractions you would most like to see during your visit.The Techtonics performing at Imperial Festival 2013

This year’s Festival will be bigger than ever and there will be hundreds of scientists to talk to, fascinating lectures to listen to, tantalizing tours to take and imaginative, interactive demonstrations.

Perhaps you’d like to dance with a robot? Or maybe you’d prefer to programme one using a Raspberry Pi computer? If so, you’ll definitely want to call in at the Festival’s brand new Robot ZoneNao, the dancing robot.

You may prefer to be first in line for our highly popular ‘behind the scenes’ tour. Based on feedback from last year’s Festival, we’ve changed the booking system to give as many people as possible the chance to take part. You will need to sign up for each tour individually and demand will be high, so it is worth thinking ahead and decide whether you would like to:

You’ll certainly want to pay a visit to the Research Zone, which is jam-packed with more than 40 incredible demonstrations and, if you have children, they will love the Wohl Reach Out Lab where the whole family can play and get involved with science and engineering activities.

Pop-up surgeryOn top of all this, there will be street performers, stand-up comedy, art installations, historical characters, a mechanical dragon, antique cars, all kinds of music from belly dancing to hip hop and even a pop-up surgery where you can watch a surgical drama unfold.

It’s a packed programme! So why not download your free copy of the Imperial Festival 2014 programme now and see where your imagination can take you.
