ATOM 2018 - Saturday 10th March to Sunday 18th March

Sunday 18th March: Talk cancellation due to weather conditions

Our speaker is snowed in in his rural home near Shaftesbury and cannot get to us today to give the Lion in the Living Room talk scheduled for today at 12 noon.

If you bought tickets online you will receive a refund back on the same card you used to pay for them or you can let us know that you would rather use the ticket for the next talk at 1.30pm. You will receive an email.

If you bought a ticket at one of our cash desks or at Mostly Books you can swap your ticket for the next talk at 1.30pm or ask for a refund from the cash desk in the foyer of the Amey Theatre.

The next talk is going ahead as far as we know and details can be found by clicking here

Science Market / Science Dome / Family Science Fair

Please note that the Science Dome event has been postponed due for safety reasons related to the weather but the Family Science Fair is an indoor event and will still go ahead. There is also a great talk about Giant Pterosaurs.



Chris Lintott of Sky at Night

ATOM Festival offers a range of talks on scientific themes including eminent speakers such as Professor Chris Lintott, who presents the BBC's Sky at Night, and Professor Marcus Du Sautoy.





Volcanoes and Dinosaurs:  Scientists Out There

Some of our talks are suitable for younger people and can inspire them to enjoy scientific subjects. Not all scientists spend their life in laboratories!  Back from field trips that take them all over the world, Dr Mike Cassidy will tell you how to escape from a volcanic eruption and Dr Dave Martill will take you on a world tour to find out more about his favourite dinosaur family, the Giant Pterosaurs.
