Virtual Festival of Geology

The Geologists’ Association first Virtual Festival of Geology is now live and this year it’s easy to attend from wherever in the world you are!
We have our regular displays from Local societies, museums exhibits and tours. There are geological traders and the GA will be offering special Festival prices for GA Guides.
There are 4 Lectures which will have a live Q & A afterwards. Don’t forget to take a look at the fabulous entries of the 2020 GA Photographic competition.
Although the Festival Walks cannot take place this year, we have virtual tours, field trips, geotrails and self propelled walks for you to enjoy.
Take a look in the Rockwatch Discovery Room, to see the some of the fantastic entries of Rockwatch Rockstar Competition There is also the Rockwatch Challenge – questions for children to answer as they wander around the Festival site with a woven badge as a reward if they get the answers right!
