Tickets went on sale today for “Tomorrow”, Swindon’s brand new festival of science and engineering, taking place at STEAM Museum on 21st and 22nd February.

Along with tickets for free entry to the main festival, tickets for shows, panels and talks have gone on sale, exploring the technology of the future, from transport to Virtual Reality.  Libby Jackson, Human Exploration Programme Manager at UK Space Agency will reveal the latest plans for the UK in missions to the Moon, and popular author Brian Clegg will explain the secrets of how to build a time machine!

A range of free workshops have also been confirmed, where families can explore the stars, learn to code, build a hydrogen car, or develop their engineering skills with the James Dyson Foundation!

“We’re looking forward to an incredibly exciting couple of days of fun, and fascinating science and engineering,” said Rod Hebden, Director of New Elements, who are delivering the festival in partnership with STEAM Museum of the Great Western Railway. “I’m lucky enough to have seen what some of our partners are planning to bring to the festival, and I am so excited to people enjoy it in Swindonl.  You’ll be able to be able to have a go at surgery or work with Artificial Intelligence, see demonstrations with liquid nitrogen and find out the latest in sustainable technology!”

Ticketing information is available on the Science Swindon website, and tickets can be booked directly from STEAM Museum.
