Organisers of Norwich Science Festival have confirmed the event will not go ahead in October, but will return in 2021.

Natalie Bailey, Norwich Science Festival producer, said: “It’s with a heavy heart that we’ve taken the decision to cancel Norwich Science Festival 2020. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, which has resulted in staff furloughing and a reduction in finances and funding, it unfortunately isn’t possible to bring you our award-winning celebration of science this year. Rest assured we’ll be back with a bang in 2021, with another interactive, engaging and entertaining festival for all ages and all levels of knowledge, organised by The Forum and partners across the city.”
