Thank You

Thanks to you we've successfully raised £8,844 in 35 days

In these times when we need science more than ever, you’ve shown that you care about the future of Cheltenham Science Festival.

Your support has helped us at a time when we needed it most. The COVID-19 crisis continues to have a devastating financial impact on Cheltenham Festivals. With your help, we are on our way to come back next year and make more Festivals that matter.

Thank you so much – it means the world to us.

We make Festivals that matter. You make that possible.

"I’m an avid fan of Cheltenham Science Festival. It is, without doubt, the premier science festival in the country because it is supported by pretty much everyone who cares about promoting science in Britain." Professor Brian Cox

What people are often surprised by is that Cheltenham Festivals is a charity reaching out year-round to children, young people and early-career scientists both locally and internationally through innovative outreach programmes.

In these times, we need science more than ever. Help us to secure the future of the Cheltenham Science Festival so that we can continue to: 

  • Inspire the next generation of doctors, scientists, researchers
  • Stimulate innovation and make the latest discoveries accessible to the public
  • Inspire public debate about the world around us
  • Grow the world's largest community of science communicators through FameLab our international science communication competition.

Why we need your support

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had to cancel our Jazz, Music and Science Festivals this year. As a charity which relies on fundraising and ticket sales for 96% of its income, this has had a devastating effect on us.

This crowdfunder is part of a larger fundraising campaign which will sustain the long-term survival of Cheltenham Festivals so that we can continue our work of bringing the arts and science to everyone, all year-round. And of course to help us come back next year in the flesh!

Our target

You can play your part to secure the future of Cheltenham Science Festival by making a donation. We are hoping to raise £10,000 but any donation you can give of any size is very gratefully received.

What will your support enable?

£25 will pay for an early career scientist to share their research with the public

£50 will enable a group of children to experience a day at the Science Festival next year

£150 will enable a class of secondary students to participate in our year-round FameLab Academy programme which nurtures young people into STEM careers
