The Magic of Science ; MANCHESTER'S MUSEUM OF SCIENCE AND INDUSTRY HOSTS AN ANNUAL FESTIVAL CELEBRATING ALL THINGS SCIENTIFIC


walters, Sarah, Manchester Evening News


FROM sleep labs to Nobel themed discos, rock gigs, hacking workshops and hot topic debates, the annual Manchester Science Festival is the ultimate all ages event in the city.

As brilliantly brainy as it is a pumping party, the festival is a creative and playful platform to engage everyone in the wonder of science by facilitating ways to get stuck in.

It's all produced by the Museum of Science & Industry, and it works with all many partners and venues to line up innovations and unique collaborations designed to make you see science from a slightly different perspective.

As usual, Manchester Science Festival 2016 is an absolute feast of fun that runs for 10 days from October 20-30 - the full programme available to view online at manchestersciencefestival.com.

Here are our favourite goings on - listed here under helpful headlines so you know which ages they're best for.
