Want funding to run your own mini science festival? 

Big Biology Days are a one-day science festival, bringing together a variety of biological organisations under one roof to celebrate the life sciences by engaging the general public with an array of hands-on activities, displays and talks.

These are becoming a more and more popular option for those wanting to get involved in outreach as an opportunity to share their passion for biology and the natural world, regardless of scientific background.

During our anniversary year, we offered 10 grants of up to £500 to run a Big Biology Day in your local area.

Application information

This grant closed for applications on 28th February 2020.

Past events

In previous years, Big Biology Days have been held in Staffordshire, Cambridge, Cardiff, Nigeria and more - we’d love to help these festivals grow and spread across the country and internationally, and hope that you are inspired to run your own.
