In 2018, Glasgow Science Festival brought fun, innovative STEM events to over 50,000 people across the city. 854 partner staff and volunteers took part and over 90 per cent of events were free to attend, giving the public the chance to explore everything from astronomy to zoology.

This is the second time Glasgow Science Festival has been recognised at these awards, after picking up a win for the 2017 festival last year.

Festival Director Dr Deborah McNeill said: “After last year’s win, we are thrilled to once again be shortlisted for Best Scottish Festival at the Scottish Hospitality Awards. This recognition is testament to the hard work of hundreds of staff, students and volunteers, who make our festival a success year on year.

“We look forward to the ceremony in May and to another year of quality science at this year’s Glasgow Science Festival from June 6 to 16.”

The Scottish Hospitality Awards will take place on May 27 at the Crowne Plaza. Glasgow Science Festival will run from June 6 to 16 this year. The programme launches on April 24.
