Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be an animal? Wondered how to make robots safe…or if we even can?

At New Scientist Live, no questions are too big, and the world’s greatest science festival is back to answer all your wild and wonderful questions!

Cover the breadth of science across five zones at the spectacular event this October, trying out a huge range of mind-boggling activities, breath-taking performances and fascinating talks from some of the greatest minds in science (and all for exclusive Fever prices!)


Discover the secrets of the moon with Maggie Aderin-Pocock, explore the incredible journey of our ancestors with Alice Roberts, and join Ola Rosling as he reveals the power of facts in a post-truth world. Get up close with our celestial partner in space at The Moon Experience, learn how to speak gorilla, and immerse yourself in an Apollo story at a pop-up planetarium.

Explore the importance of gut health with Megan Rossi, discover how to beat your genes with Chris and Xand van Tulleken, and learn about the problem with plastic with Liz Bonnin. Take the ride of your life on a VR roller coaster, get up close with the world’s most incredible creatures with the British Ecological Society, and take a peek at what the future of healthcare holds in our operating theatre of the future.

Feeling inspired already? We thought so.

And if you’re still loving the vibes at this extraordinary festival of ideas and discovery – the fun doesn’t have to stop there. New Scientist Live will be launching their first ever Lates programme at this year’s show; opening doors until 9pm for a Friday night packed with exclusive after-dark content!

Bring your friends, grab a drink and enjoy an evening of comedy, magic, dating, nocturnal animals and much, much more. Hit the dance floor, immerse yourself in gravitational waves, and be intrigued by their after-dark science talks.

Exclusive Fever prices provide 30% off of all tickets (from adults and kids, and even lates!). Not a bad price for an incredible, mind-blowing journey of discovery, seeing science like never before, is it?

Whether you’re mad about all things science, or simply curious about the world that we live in, there truly is something for all big thinkers at New Scientist Live 2019.

New Scientist Live takes place at ExCel London between October 10-13. Get your tickets here
