Life Science Centre offered free instructor-led hula hooping sessions for adults today to mark Playday – the national day of play in the UK.
The hula sessions, which ran for one day only, are part of a summer of fun as Life celebrates its 21st birthday and officially enters ‘adulthood’.
Linda Conlon, Life's Chief Executive, said: “We hear so much about ‘adulting’ and the mundane demands of daily life, but promoting play and imaginative discovery for adults can have a positive impact on our professional lives, our relationships and our mental wellbeing.
“It is fantastic to see so many adults letting their hair down, having fun with hula hooping and enjoying themselves at Life today.”
Life Science Centre is open seven days a week, offering lots of fun and hands-on activities and exhibitions for all ages.
