Fertility Fest 2018

See events

Fertility Fest is the world’s first arts festival dedicated to fertility, infertility, modern families and the science of making babies.

150 artists and fertility experts in a week-long programme of events, entertainment, discussion, debate, support and solidarity.

We’ve got three big aims.

1. To improve understanding of the emotional journey of people who struggle to conceive.

2. To improve the level of public discourse about reproductive science.

3. To improve fertility education – young people deserve a more rounded and robust understanding of human fertility.

We do this by bringing arts and science together. Come and join us! We know this stuff is difficult to talk about but you can just listen if you want to. It’s important. It’s how the human race is being made (and sometimes not) today.

Tickets range from £0 – £35. See events below for details.
