The BA Festival of Science is the BA's flagship event and offers a range of sponsorship opportunities. This year the Festival visits the South West of England hosted by the University of Exeter. As the UK's foremost annual science event the Festival boasts an impressive line up of renowned scientists and the most media coverage of any regular public science event in the UK. In stories from the Festival were covered in 300 articles in national and regional newspapers, 102 Broadcast items (TV & Radio) and 208 online articles.
The Festival in the City We are currently seeking sponsorship of 'The Festival in the City', a cohesive programme of public interest science events. Traditionally the Festival has been largely based around a series of daytime lectures and sessions that took place at the host unversity with a few events in the host city.
This year the BA has evolved the Festival into two more distinct aspects: the daytime programme of content rich lectures and debates (The Festival at the University) and a programme of public interest science events that are more accessible to local people in the surrounding region (The Festival in the City). This programme has the potential to tap into a diverse range of audiences in the South West and will provide excellent profile for sponsors.
Please for more information on sponsoring the Festival in the City programme at the Festival of Science.
The Opening Doors Festival FundThe ‘Opening Doors’ Festival Fund was created to support people who might find difficulty in attending the Festival either through financial hardship, physical barriers or other manifestations of social exclusion. This will take various forms appropriate to the needs of the recipients, for example, waiving of entry charges, provision of coaches or other transport, provision of special needs helpers, reserved inexpensive accommodation, availability of translators and so on.
The fund will be aimed at enabling everyone in the host City to attend the Festival as well as visitors from further afield. All contrbutors to the Opening Doors Fund will be mentioned in the Festival programme which will be distributed widely before and during the event. If you would like to make a contrbution to the fund please who would be delighted to hear from you or download a giving form.
