The MRC Festival takes place in England, Scotland, Wales and Africa where a wide range of free public activities involving scientists from research establishments, including MRC units, centres and institutes, will showcase MRC-funded research.
MRC Festival activities include open days, stalls in retail locations, workshops, interactive seminars and quizzes. Some are open to the public, either as drop-in sessions or by booking a free place in advance, while others are designed for a specifically invited audience, such as schools or patient groups.
