Event details

Fiery hands, feverish folding and Pink Floyd bangers!

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.

Don’t forget to wear your best Christmas jumper at this event!


Highlights of Noël:

  • Experience a 10-minute sample of Pink Floyd’s The Wall set to visuals in the planetarium, including the 1979 Christmas number one single, Another Brick in the Wall (part 2).
  • Learn the art of origami gift-wrapping in the Making Studios.
  • Warm your hands with methane fire – perfect to set your Insta alight!
  • Watch as a mathematician maps out Santa's optimal delivery route on a digital globe.
  • A music channel dedicated to the best songs of 2019 at the silent disco in Life’s new exhibition, Space Zone.

Tuck into gourmet burgers (v, vg and gf options available) and wash it down with a drink from the bar – maybe a festive mulled wine?
(Separate charges apply for food and drink.)

Please note: All workshops and activities are subject to demand on the night and will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Playlists created by Life’s silent disco supporter, HMV Newcastle.
