British Science Festival 5-10 September 2009.

The British Science Festival (formerly the BA Festival of Science) is one of Europe’s largest science festivals, taking place each September. The Festival is in a different location in the UK each year, bringing you the latest in science, technology and engineering.

Our week long, jam-packed programme offers the biggest celebration of science, engineering and technology in Europe. With loads of events for everyone, thousands of people join us for talks, plays, debates, hands-on activities and more. This year the Festival is hosted by the University of Surrey in Guildford from 5-10 September with events taking place across Surrey.

Cash for Schools

Local schools have the chance to win a share of £12,000. The Cash for Schools campaign is sponsored by Fidelity International. A supplement will appear in the Leatherhead Advertiser week ending 14th November 2008. Voting forms will be in the supplement also.

“The competition offers schools the opportunity to win a share of £12,000 to help with a community project.

Sponsored by Fidelity International, all of the short-listed proposals will feature in a special supplement to be printed in November.

Readers will then have the chance to vote on the project they think should win a share of the cash.” ( Source:
