A Night in the Stars – Edinburgh Science Festival

I’ve always been a huge fan of the Edinburgh Science Festival and have taken my kids to it may times in the past, so I’m really excited to be performing at one of the Late Labs in 2023!

I’ll be performing two sets as part of an ‘ambulatory’ performance to celebrate the James Webb Space Telescope.

The James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) is one of the biggest and most ambitious scientific missions of this century, letting us peer deeper into our Universe and sending back the most incredible photographs. Celebrate this groundbreaking scientific achievement with a celestial evening of art, circus, poetry, drop-in activities, planetarium shows and talks with some of the very people who made JWST possible.

Edinburgh Science Festival – what else is on?

Saturday 1 April to Sunday 16 April in venues across Edinburgh.

Although my event is a paid ticket event, the Science Festival has lots of free activities, plus some online, and more inclusive events…

There are events for families, children and/or adults only.

Children under 3 ‘babes in arms’ are free. Adults go free with Child Entry Pass on 7th, 8th and 10th April with the promo code EASTEREGG23.

There are some BSL interpreted events and relaxed performances – more info in the brochure – link below.

The online programme is only showing 1 online event at time of writing, however there are a few online and on demand events and shows – see page 24 of the brochure.

You can search different event types and themes online, but not which ones are free. However there are lots of free events: download and open the brochure then use ‘Ctrl + F’ to search words.

The hashtag on social media is: #EdSciFest
