UPDATE: For months, we’ve been hoping that the Covid-19 situation would ease and we could run New Scientist Live safely and with as much energy and passion as in previous years. So it’s with a heavy heart that we’ve taken the decision to postpone this year’s show until 14-17 October 2021. Ensuring the health, safety and wellbeing of our many wonderful visitors, speakers, exhibitors and partners is always our primary consideration and sadly we do not believe we can achieve this without adopting measures that would remove the fantastic interactivity and engagement that sits at the heart of New Scientist Live.

All is not lost, however. We are now exploring the possibility of running a virtual New Scientist Live later this year. Our aim is to recreate the same exciting combination of inspiring speakers, stimulating experiences and engaging activities that New Scientist Live has always offered but in an online form. A virtual version could even make possible some ideas considered way too ambitious in the past!
