Get ready Queensland – science will be taken out of the labs and onto the streets for World Science Festival Brisbane next March, and from today people are able to get early tickets for the celebration.

Minister for Science Leeanne Enoch said the annual event, which has been secured for another three years for Queensland, would be held from 20-24 March 2019.

“World Science Festival Brisbane is one of the world’s most engaging, exciting and educational science events held on our own doorstep,” Ms Enoch said.

“Hosted by Queensland Museum, this year’s festival attracted record-breaking crowds of nearly 200,000 people.

“There is a great line-up for next year’s festival, including cutting-edge science programs, international guest speakers and a range of free events.

“World Science Festival will also go to regional areas again next year, including Gladstone, Townsville, Ipswich, Toowoomba and Chinchilla and I encourage everyone to be a part of this incredible science spectacular.”

Minister Enoch said early bird tickets would be available until the end of December.

“The World Science Festival is all about bringing science to life and we’ll be offering visitors an eclectic program– from conversations tackling the biggest challenges in science, to performances inspired by global discoveries to hands-on workshops for families, all aimed at sharing the very latest from the world of science.”

Queensland Museum Acting CEO Dr Jim Thompson said the 2019 festival promises an exciting line-up of events that will be held in Queensland Museum and across the Cultural Precinct at South Brisbane.

“We have an incredible line up of speakers including festival co-founder and international physicist Professor Brian Greene on the future of the red planet; acclaimed Dutch fashion and robotics designer Anouk Wipprecht, Australian conservationist Dr Tim Flannery; Professor Hugh Possingham discussing the future of Australia’s wildlife under threat; and Chief Scientist of the Australian Antarctic Division who will lead a discussion on what happens in the Antarctic, matters for everybody, everywhere.”
