The annual MRC Festival of Medical Research takes place from 13–23 June 2019. To find MRC Festival activities near you to attend, take a look at the MRC Festival programme

The MRC Festival takes place in England, Scotland, Wales and Africa where a wide range of free public activities involving scientists from research establishments, including MRC units, centres and institutes, will showcase MRC-funded research.

MRC Festival activities include open days, stalls in retail locations, workshops, interactive seminars and quizzes. Some are open to the public, either as drop-in sessions or by booking a free place in advance, while others are designed for a specifically invited audience, such as schools or patient groups.
