The Mobile University 2017

Friday 22–Sunday 24 September

Ding Ding! The Mobile University is back in Sheffield

We are once again climbing on board a vintage bus with University of Sheffield researchers to meet audiences and bring our research to life. This is an invitation to join us and find out more about the research that happens at the University every day.

Tickets: All the talks and demonstrations are free. Booking is not required, but seats are limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Each talk will also be streamed live to a video screen in a gazebo next to the bus.


There are talks on everything from supernovae to Yorkshire puddings, with demonstrations running throughout the weekend. For the full programme, see our day schedules below or download a PDF copy of the festival programme.

Friday 22 September - The Moor

Saturday 23 September - The Moor

Sunday 24 September - Barker's Pool

How to find us

We will be parked on The Moor on Friday and Saturday, and in Barker's Pool on Sunday.
