Event details

This Halloween, we're paying homage to Beetlejuice. (With those black and white stripes, he's clearly a fan of Newcastle, too!)

 

Adults take over Life Science Centre on the last Thursday night of the month. With no kids around, we can be bolder and more daring with the workshops and activities on offer.

Highlights of A Homage to Beetlejuice:

  • Head to the insect sushi bar and discover this food of the future!
  • Monochrome optical illusions that are weirder than Beetlejuice’s pinstripe suit.
  • Discover how insects play a crucial role in homicide investigations with a forensic entomology workshop.
Please note: All workshops and activities are subject to demand on the night and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
