Please read! 

Life is delighted to be the venue for an NHS large vaccination centre, but the operation of the centre, including appointments and queueing, is solely the responsibility of the NHS. Sorry, but Life will not respond to any queries relating to the NHS vaccination programme.

The NHS has issued the following information: Only people who are invited to have a vaccine can book an appointment. For more information go to this NHS website.

Parking is available in nearby Times Square Car Park. Limited spaces are available on site on a first-come, first-served basis – sorry, but we are unable to reserve spaces. 


Due to Government restrictions, Life Science Centre, Life Meetings and Events and Times Square Café are currently closed. For any queries, please email We look forward to welcoming you back soon. Stay safe.

Due to the Government-imposed lockdown, Life Science Centre is currently closed.

2020 has seen our shops, bars, restaurants, theatres – and science centres! – forced to close in response to the pandemic. With people’s physical and mental health at risk and the economy crashing, should the COVID-19 vaccine be compulsory for everyone? Join our online debate!

Some countries already have mandatory vaccination programmes, with France and Italy requiring all children to have certain vaccinations in order to attend school. The idea of allowing bars, restaurants and workplaces to refuse entry to people without proof of vaccination has been floated, but does compulsory vaccination play to people’s mistrust of vaccines? With the repeated forced closures of businesses, can we afford for people to not get vaccinated?

The rapid development of COVID-19 vaccines is cause for concern for some, but the more people who receive a vaccine, the more useful it will be. Where do we draw the line between the Government’s responsibility to protect public health and one’s autonomy over their body? Is it better to persuade people with a gentle nudge, or invoke restrictions to push them into it?
