Potions Workshop

Key info...

This event is no longer running
 Set aside: 15-20 minutes
 Who is it perfect for:  Children aged 5+

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.
