Manchester and District Branch

Covering Greater Manchester, the Manchester and District Branch is one of 11 regional branches in England, and part of a wider network of IOP activity across our Nations including Scotland, Ireland and Wales.

Our activities

We organise talks, visits and engagement opportunities for members in and around the Manchester area, and work locally to promote physics, physics education and public understanding of physics. If you are interested in finding out more, or getting involved, please contact the regional manager Allison Vickers: [email protected].
