Events & exhibitions

The Sciencentre offers hours of interactive, science-based fun for kids of all ages (including the 'big kids'!).

There are no 'visitors' at the Sciencentre - everyone is a 'participant'. This place is a 100% hands-on experience!

From 21 January 2018, the Sciencentre will close for redevelopment to create a brand new, state of the art science engagement experience, opening again on 1 July 2018. This is being done in partnership with the Science Museum, London and is sure to be a place of inspiration and wonder.
