In 2021 the UK Robotics Week has been given a revamp as the UK Festival of Robotics!

This brand new 7-day celebration set to boost public engagement in robotics and intelligent systems. This exciting week-long programme will run from 19th – 25th June 2021, offering online events, special competitions, and interactive activities for robot enthusiasts of all ages.

The week will incorporate virtual award presentations for the talented winners of our 2021 KS1 ‘Draw A Robot’ design and KS2 ‘Once Upon A Robot’ story writing competitions for school children, plus an award ceremony to congratulate the very worthy winners of our School Robot Competition 2020.


For five years the UK Robotics Week has been the leading UK event in robotics and automated systems, with over 165 events – including 54 core events organised by the Network – featured in in the 2019 programme.

Held in the last week of June each year, UK Robotics Week showcased hundreds of robotics events, ranging from competitions, lectures, open days, symposia, hackathons, festivals, workshops, and film premieres throughout the UK.

The week concluded with our highlight event the International Robotics Showcase.
