Unfortunately there will be no Word Festival this year - we're taking a year off to organise the British Science Festival 2012 which will happen in September from the 4th to the 9th, right here in Aberdeen.
The British Science Festival is the largest science festival in Europe and hasn't been to Aberdeen since 1963, so the University is delighted to be chosen to host it this year. We've already confirmed some fascinating events and speakers including Bill Bryson! You can find out more here www.abdn.ac.uk/science/public/2012
We will come back with a new Festival in May 2013, so please join up to the University's mailing list to find out the latest news and we will also send you festival programmes as soon as they are released. www.abdn.ac.uk/events/mailing-list
