Please read! 

Life is delighted to be the venue for an NHS large vaccination centre, but the operation of the centre, including appointments and queueing, is solely the responsibility of the NHS. Sorry, but Life will not respond to any queries relating to the NHS vaccination programme.

The NHS has issued the following information: Only people who are invited to have a vaccine can book an appointment. For more information go to this NHS website.

Parking is available in nearby Times Square Car Park. Limited spaces are available on site on a first-come, first-served basis – sorry, but we are unable to reserve spaces. 

 

Due to Government restrictions, Life Science Centre, Life Meetings and Events and Times Square Café are currently closed. For any queries, please email info@life.org.uk. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Stay safe.

Life Science Centre will not be running its outdoor ice rink this year due to ongoing uncertainty caused by the pandemic. Read the full statement >

Event details

Add ingredients, mix and watch closely. What will your potion do?

 

Children who don’t go to witch or wizard school can still get in on the fun of potion making this half-term.
 

Apprentices will learn how to mix their own concoctions and watch things rise from the depths of a cauldron before they try to make their own potions. Chanting spells is optional!
 

(Fancy dress is not provided.)

The Potions Workshop is included in the general Science Centre ticket price. Each workshop has a capacity of 32, including both adults and children. There will be multiple workshops on throughout the day - just sign up for one at our reception when you arrive at the science centre.


Please note:

This workshop has an age restriction of 5+. Smaller children will be able to go into the room whilst the workshop is taking place to avoid splitting families up, but they will not be allowed to participate in the workshop.
