Essential info
Please read! 

Please note that some areas will be closed from 5 September – 25 October (inclusive) as we get ready for the launch of the new Space Zone (opens 26 October). Prices have been reduced to reflect this.

The 4D Motion Ride has been a firm favourite for visitors of all ages since Life Science Centre opened nearly 20 years ago. However, as the science centre continues to grow and evolve, it is time to retire this popular attraction to make space for something new – so make sure you visit by 25 October 2019 if you want to enjoy one final thrilling ride! Life would like to hear from visitors what they’d like to see replace the 4D Motion Ride, so please send your ideas to info@life.org.uk. Also, don’t forget to check out the science centre’s newest exhibition Space Zone from 26 October 2019 to explore the wonders of the Universe and discover how space exploration impacts our everyday lives.

Event details

The antidote to work and exam stress!

 

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.
 

For ultimate comfort, come dressed in your PJs for this event!
 

Highlights of Unplug and Unwind:

  • Enjoy a mobile phone-free night as you take part in our smartphone amnesty: we’ll be locking devices out of swiping reach for the night in specially-designed Yondr pouches*.
  • Find your zen at a Vinyasa flow yoga taster class**.
  • Rediscover the joy of play with 12,000 bricks available in a LEGO® brick pit. 
  • Learn to be in the moment with a mindfulness workshop.
  • Experience ASMR immersion in the planetarium and find out more about these brain tingles from ASMR researchers in our whisper café.
  • A music channel dedicated to chilled out tunes at the silent disco in Life’s Space Zone exhibition.

 

Tuck into gourmet burgers (v, vg and gf options available) and wash it down with a drink from the bar. (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.


*Visitors will remain in possession of their mobiles at all times. Mobiles should be set to vibrate for emergency calls, with an unlocking station available throughout the night.   
** Yoga mats will be provided. Please note, you’ll be asked to remove your shoes for this activity and visitors will be asked to leave the class if they are intoxicated.
