Half-term treats (without the tricks!) on Saturday 20th October - Saturday 3rd November 2018
Children can visit Life Science Centre for FREE* this half-term (20 October – 4 November) so all little monsters can enjoy the frightfully good events on offer!
Not enrolled in a school for witchcraft and wizardry? Don’t fret! Join us for our spellbinding Potions workshop and watch things rise from the depths of a cauldron before trying to make you own.
Also included in the admission price is the new live show How to be an Evil Genius**and the 4D Motion Ride*** Frankenstein: Escape the Monster, where the on-screen action comes to life as you hurtle down a mine railroad as you try to escape! There are also plenty of hands-on activities, including the chance for children to make their own spooky haunted house to take away with them.
If you’re not afraid of the dark, head into our planetarium – the biggest in the North of England – for a show all about planets, called Alien Worlds.
Visitors can also explore an activity trail through the blockbuster exhibition Robots – then and now, developed by the Science Museum in London, before it leaves Life Science Centre a few weeks later.
With so much to do, Life will open an hour earlier than usual on weekdays during half-term, at 9.00am.

***You must be at least 1.2 metres in height to use the 4D Motion Ride. The smoke effects in the show may cause breathing difficulties to people with allergies. Some children may find some scenes in the film scary. We recommend parents and guardians watch the film in advance to make their own judgement on whether this is suitable for the children in their care.
