Described by Professor Lord Robert Winston as “unquestionably the leading science festival in the country”, The Times Cheltenham Science Festival is a five-day celebration of science – and with intimate venues and a unique format it’s a rare opportunity for policy makers, research funders, the media and the general public to come face-to-face with the world’s leading scientists and thinkers.

Physicist and presenter Brian Cox and ‘chef of the decade’ Heston Blumenthal are Guest Directors, and have helped shape a programme with over 100 thought-provoking and innovative events: exploring everything from the natural world and health secrets to the technological wizardry that will shape tomorrow’s world. Top scientists will examine the latest medical technology, debate the future of our climate, explore the next intelligent methods of travel, question the things that affect all our lives – and lots more!

‘Decadence’ is the theme of 2010: luxurious, self-indulgent, and a subject sure to spark debate, live experiments and surprising discoveries. Big thinkers Paul Davies, Tony Robinson, Bill Bryson, Ok Pannenborg, Evan Davis and many others descend on the Festival; and Robin Ince returns with Ben Miller for a science and comedy collision – all based at Cheltenham Town Hall.

Please join us on 9-13 June 2010 - the full programme is now available at
