Spooky Autumn at Life

As the nights draw in and the temperatures drop, enjoy a feast of hands-on fun, live shows, experiments and fab stuff to make and take home. And there’s a good dollop of spooky science to get you thinking about your senses – can you really trust what you see, hear, smell and touch? 

Come and join the fun! We're open on weekends only until Saturday 23 October, and then we're back open 7 days.
