Community Festival 2022 – save the date!

On the Saturday 25 June we’ll once again be opening our doors to the local community.

Ever fancied programming your own robot, hunting for meteorites or exploring how our amazing hearts work? Our free Community Festival is jam-packed with fun activities for all the family. Whether you want to get hands-on or just want to listen to some fascinating stories and watch live performances, we’ve got it covered.

The University’s annual Community Festival showcases the cutting-edge research of one of the UK’s leading Universities. Over the years the University has been home to some world-changing discoveries in science, medicine and the arts, contributing to Manchester’s history as the birthplace of new ideas.

On 25 June we’re inviting you and all our friends and neighbours in the local community to go behind the scenes of the University and discover the exciting work taking place here. Join us for a fun-filled day of hands-on activities, heritage and botanical tours, live experiments, creative arts, the chance to meet with our staff and scientists…and much, much more!
