Partnership Opportunities

The Glasgow Science Festival (GSF) typically runs during the first two weeks in June in venues across the city of Glasgow. Since 2020, we have included a digital offer 'Science on the Sofa'. During the festival we are engaging with around 100,000 participants. In addition to our year-round programme of community & schools engagement.

We welcome partnership working with organisations that align with our ethos and offer the opportunity to promote your business in the community and be intimately associated with one of the biggest science festivals in the UK. 

We have a range of sponsorship opportunities available from festival headline sponsor, large public & family days through to supporting one-off events. As well as suporting our schools and community programmes throughout the year.

We include some examples below and encourage you to contact Festival Director, Dr Deborah McNeill:, to discuss.

Large Scale Public & Family Day Sponsor

We regularly see 2,000+ people per day our family events, which give people of all ages the chance to engage with fun, hands-on science for free.

Family day venues include:

  • Universities 
  • Riverside Museum
  • Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum
  • Glasgow Botanic Gardens
  • Shopping centres
  • Comunity venues and gardens

As a sponsor you will enjoy visibility at the event and inclusion in promotional activities. There is also the option to include your own activity and actively participant. 

Event Sponsor 

Our programme regularly features between 50-100 events, with fantastic opportunities to promote your business. We have created or hosted everything from outdoor film screenings, debates, panel discussions, whisky tasting, science themed pub quizzes, walking tours, visits to nature reserves, and 1000s of hands-on activities. Get involved by sponsoring a one-off event or we can work with you to create your own!

Bespoke Package

Our small team will happily tailor a bespoke sponsorship package to suit your organisation’s budget and objectives. Perhaps there's a specific audience you want to reach? Maybe you want to upskill your staff to do community engagement themselves. Or to develop your own public event?
