Event details

School's out, game on!


Whatever the weather, you can create your own summer at Life. Build and explore imaginative virtual worlds in the Game On 2.0 exhibition, or head to our new Making Studios to create something to take home. Plus, there's a special week of activities to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing!


Highlights include:

  • Challenge friends and family to a multiplayer game, or set the high score in an arcade classic – there's something for everyone with more than 150 playable games in our exciting exhibition Game On 2.0.
  • Join us for Super Hero Science – a show performed in Life’s in-house theatre that explores whether the powers of four super heroes can be replicated using science.
  • Get hands-on with a changing programme of activities in the new Making Studios, including lino cutting, block printing and super hero costume designing – there’ll be lots of new activities to make and take home during the holidays. And, for one day only, award-winning costume designer Paul Shriek will be at Life on 19 August to help take your super hero costume designs to the next level!
  • Experience what the Earth looks like from above in the planetarium show A View from Space, or explore the stars with the presenter-led show Live Skies. For little ones, Naughty Monsters in the Sky explains where the Sun goes at night and why the Moon changes shape.
