The 2018 Bristol Neuroscience Festival will take place on 22nd-24th March 2018 in the Wills Memorial Building with a Plenary Lecture on 23rd March 2018 in the Victoria Rooms. 

This three-day Festival is the culmination of both the Brain Awareness Week and British Science Week 2018. Come and meet neuroscience students, clinicians and local organisations to learn and talk about all things brain-related. There will be the opportunity to explore the ‘Evolution of the Brain’ exhibition and attend talks by University of Bristol academic researchers. You will have the opportunity to wander through our gallery and peruse the artwork from the ‘Brain Art’ competition.
