SATURDAY – SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 10th-11th 10.00am – 5.00pm. For 7-12 year-olds.

Top explainers from top universities bring tip-top equipment to show you the world of tomorrow, today. But the main thing is, it’s fun; with 35 hands-on activities and demonstrations around Hove Park Upper School, designed to fascinate grown-ups as much as their children. About 3,000 visit during the weekend. Average stay is two hours, but many stay all day. Give yourselves plenty of time.

For tickets, directions and advice, go to

Hove Park Upper School, Nevill Road, Hove, BN3 7BN £6 / £21 for family ticket, under-7s free.


SATURDAY FEBRUARY 17th 10.30am – 5.00pm. For 11 years old and up.

The Sackler Centre’s famous exhibition and demonstration Being SomeBody is the centrepiece of this special day for young people. Debating and discussing young people’s issues will be MC’ed by the Stand-up Philosophers and the irresistible Talkaoke Table. Meanwhile, find out why Swearing Is Good For You, and check out your prejudices with What’s Your Bias. Enjoy the science, the crafts, the refreshments, the games, and find out what it’s like ‘to be SomeBody’.

We have a ton of events (literally, a hundred). This means the programme is packed, so please go online to find more details about the events, maps, journey time and details for booking tickets. Each day’s programme can be downloaded as well, so you can plan your trips properly in advance.

Last year just about everything had a full house, so book in advance if you can (especially for computer-related events, since they tend to have smaller group sizes).
