Event details

Life Science Centre is a charity and we rely on the generous support of other organisations to help us fund Maker Faire UK. So as much as we love it, we can’t commit to a 2019 event. If and when we are in a position to host Maker Faire UK again, we’ll let everyone know. If you want to be amongst the first to find out, please sign up to e-news: life.org.uk/subscribe

For all there is to know about Maker Faire UK, visit the official website: www.makerfaireuk.com

Maker Faire UK is the greatest show (and tell) on Earth! It’s a two day family friendly festival of invention and creativity, bringing together over 300 hackers, crafters, coders, DIYers and garden shed inventors from across the globe – people who love to make stuff and who want to share their passion with the public.

At Maker Faire UK, you can explore and create with the Makers and enjoy playful installations. So whether you want to unleash your inner inventor, find out how science, technology, engineering and maths shape the world around you – or if you just fancy a great, hands-on day out, don’t miss Maker Faire UK.

To keep up to date with the latest news, sign up to the Maker Faire UK mailing list, follow @MakerFaire_UK on Twitter or like Maker Faire UK on Facebook.

*Everyone is welcome at Maker Faire but there will be big crowds and many of the craft activities involve using scissors, sharp implements and small components. Due to the number of activities, there's not much room for buggies.


​As there’s so much going on at Maker Faire UK, Life Science Centre won’t be offering its usual programme. There will be changes to our café menus and the packed lunch area will be closed. The Young Explorers' Zone will be closed. 

Terms & Conditions
Please use the Life Science Centre main entrance on Times Square. Parking is available nearby at Times Square Car Park. Postcode for Sat Nav: NE4 7AD.
