CANCELLED Cambridge Science Festival

Cancellation of Stefan Marciniak’s Talk:

Cambridge Science Festival has taken the very difficult decision to cancel hands-on activities over the two weekends of the Festival. The Alliance Française decided this morning to cancel the Talk of Saturday too. Health and safety of the visitors, researchers and volunteers is our most important priority and we, therefore, feel this is the most appropriate decision to take at this time. We know this will be a disapointing decision for many people but we feel this is for the best, based on the information we have at present.

We’re in the process of updating our website now so please check back regularly for updates.

Advice from NHS and Public Health England

We strongly recommend that visitors refer to the government response webpages and ask everyone to check our website and social media channels for updates. More information on how to prevent the spread of the virus can be found on the NHS Coronavirus-COVID19 information page and we encourage you to follow this advice. This includes:
