Edinburgh Science Festival will return from Saturday 9 – Sunday 24 April 2022 with the theme of Revolutions.

In the year that sees the 75th anniversary of Edinburgh's birth as a world leading festival city, we’re delighted to get back to doing what we love most – delivering live events. This includes a return to our family hub at City Art Centre and two major new interactive exhibitions, DataSphere and Consumed, alongside a vibrant and varied programme of other events for audiences of all ages in collaboration with our network of amazing partners.

Focusing on everything from personal to planetary health – and with an unashamed emphasis on the urgency of tackling the climate crisis – the 2022 Festival will explore lifeforms, lifecycles, revolutionary ideas and solutions to global challenges. Revolutions in science and ideas have given us the scientific, industrial and now climate and data revolutions, each increasing our understanding of the Universe and our place in it.

This year's Festival acts as a heartfelt call for a truly radical shift in the attitudes and behaviours of individuals, organisations and nations to combat the climate crisis and protect the delicately interconnected lifecycles of our planet. Join us for what promises to be a joyful celebration of the role that science and technology and festivals play in our lives – bringing people together, creating new experiences, sharing the joy of discovery, shedding fresh light on the key issues shaping that future and celebrating the human spirit – and let the good times roll!
