Science Live aims to support event organisers by giving you access to scientists and activity providers, connecting you with local volunteers and putting your events in front of the right audiences.

Great events begin with a great idea, but without an impressive black book it’s often hard to find the right mix of contributors to get it off the ground. There’s also a large amount of other work involved with putting on a successful event; whether that’s marketing and coming up with content, or setting up on the day and undertaking evaluation so you know what worked and what could be improved next time around.

You can search our offered ads for advisors to help you plan and curate your events, as well as volunteers and speakers to help you run and deliver your events. You can also create wanted ads for the various roles you’d like to fill. When you create wanted ads they are added to our database, and the opportunity will be emailed out to the contributors whose criteria match yours. If they are interested, they will get in touch.

Once you have details for your event, like the date, venue and subject, you can register it so that we can help you attract an audience. Events will be added to our event listings and map on the What’s on page, and displayed to people in your area looking for events to attend.
