ATOM Festival of Science & Technology 22-26 March 2017

The 2017 ATOM Festival of Science and Technology will take place in Abingdon between Wednesday 22nd and Sunday 26th March. The Festival has a full programme of talks, school events and a Fair in the Market Square on Saturday 25th.

Your members and their families may be particularly interested in the talks on “What makes us human”, “Dinosaur hunting in Africa” (aimed at a family audience) and “Antarctica: Treasury of climate data” although, of course, they will be most welcome at any of the talks or events. We would be very grateful if you could inform your members of the Festival, perhaps via your newsletter or any regular emails that you send out.

Full details of all of the talks and events can be found on the Festival web site,  where tickets can be purchased for any of the talks. There is also an early bird discount for those booking before the end of February, or a Festival pass for those wishing to attend a number of talks. In addition, if your organisation would like to arrange for a group of ten or more to go to one of the talks please contact me at to discuss a group booking at a discount from the full (March) prices.

If you have any other questions about the Festival, please contact us at

We look forward to seeing some of your members at the Festival.
