This year is a milestone for Sheila Donegan of Calmast.

The festival brings top scientists and science presenters from the south east together with international scientists and presenters, with a variety of shows, presentations and lectures on important scientific issues. There are fun shows for children and families, and lectures on more serious science issue affecting all of us for the general public.
