Join us at this year’s Community Festival 2023

by | May 11, 2023

Community festivalOn Saturday 10 June we’ll once again be opening our doors to our local community.

Ever fancied hunting for the stars, tickling a robot or fighting killer fungus? Ever wondered how strong chocolate is, how the nervous system works or wanted to share your Manchester memories?

Our free Community Festival runs from 11am – 4pm and 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. We’re showcasing some world-changing discoveries across the sciences, medicine and the arts and adding in a healthy dose of play – and you get to be a part of it!

We’re opening up a host of exciting spaces on campus for indoor and outdoor activities including Manchester Museum a place of extraordinary stories and objects in unique galleries.

Have fun exploring 

One visitor from last year said: “It was amazing to see children so motivated about science. The activities really captured their attention. A five-star day!”

So come and join us for a marvellous day of interactive science experiments, creative sessions, poetry, and music performances, story time, forestry school, sporting challenges, heritage tours, face-painting, a helter-skelter, the chance to meet with our staff, students and community partners…and much, much more!
