This Halloween, we're opening our doors for a night of frightening frivolity.


Have a pint pulled by a robot, enjoy some chilling tunes and be part of a Halloween experience like no other.

See our Robots - then and now exhibition in a new (eerie) light, explore the North's biggest planetarium and hop aboard the 4D Ride for some gruesome fun.

Channel your inner scientist in the Experiment Zone, decorate a Day of the Dead sugar skull, navigate the laser maze and be cyborged in the special effects make up area.

Dressing up encouraged - and you could win a prize!

Highlights include:

  • Robots - then and now - the thrilling exhibition from the Science Museum.
  • Don a lab coat and channel your inner scientist in our Experiment Zone.
  • Interactive dissection: discover the inner workings of organs.
  • Day of the Dead sugar skulls decoration workshop.
  • Create glowing creations in the Making Space.

  • Navigate the laser maze.
  • Awe-inspiring visuals in the planetarium simulating the birth of artificial intelligence (includes rapidly flashing visuals).

  • Rock out to the Robot Band: created through various final year projects in the School of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Leeds, this three piece features the classic combination of drums, bass and glockenspiel! There'll also be cool tunes courtesy of DJ: Electric Nite.
  • Prize-winning online chat bot Mitsuku will answer your questions. The more people who talk to her the smarter she becomes.
  • Enjoy the perfect pint of Wylam Ale, pulled by a robot of course, or if gin is your tipple, head to our spooky UV Gin Bar for a glowing concoction.
  • Capture the night at the selfie station.
