16th March to 15th April including Easter school holidays

Spring into a new season of exciting science fun at Boom & Bloom!

Outside things are beginning to bloom and inside our experiments are set to go boom. As well as all the usual Science Centre fun, there’ll be even more on offer to excite all ages.

We’re bubbling over with fun in the Science Theatre! Through a double bubble of exciting experiments and live demos, you’ll discover more about the science of bubbles in the fun 20-minute free live show, Bubble Trouble.

Of course, it wouldn't be Easter without an egg hunt. But ours isn’t like all the others! Join us on a hunt around the Centre to explore the differences between rabbits and hares and solve the puzzles along the way in order to grab yourself a delicious chocolate treat.

In the Planetarium, we’ll be blasting off into Atmospheres, a live presenter-led show, where you’ll explore beyond the atmosphere of our planet. And in subtitled film show, We Are Stars, discover the secrets of our cosmic chemistry.

And don’t forget all the other fun on offer! With two floors of interactive hands-on exhibits and huge demos in Science Live, there'll be something for the whole family to enjoy.

The Science Centre is open on weekends and during the school holidays. Don't forget to book your ticket in advance.
