This year, we are particularly keen to receive applications for events in Swindon, London and Wales. We also continue to encourage applications from early career researchers who want to find ways to engage with audiences through a variety of activities. You can apply for funding of up to £1,000 towards running your event, or you can simply be part of the Festival if you are able to self-fund by applying for participation only.
