A world of science is coming to Chelmsford in March

A series of talks, events and activities to celebrate the scientific world is coming to Chelmsford in March as Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) hosts the Chelmsford Science Festival.

The festival will take place from 11-15 March, with a range of free events exploring topics including medicine, engineering, psychology and sport as well as the city's own industrial heritage.
