Leeds Festival of Science to host an exciting public programme

Discover the science behind M&S's chocolate melt in the middle pudding, attend a science workshop, or spend an evening with a stand-up mathematician at this year's Leeds Festival of Science.


Along with its extensive programme for schools, an exciting programme of events on campus is open to all, which includes a wide-range of activities, workshops and lectures.

Highlights include: a tour of the Leeds Cancer Research UK Centre; a day of Bragg Public Lectures; an evening with stand-up mathematician Matt Parker; and a hands-on session in which those with a sweet tooth can discover the chemistry that makes those M&S melt in the middle puddings possible.

City-wide events will also be taking place on Saturday 23 March, with a maths busking team taking to the streets of Leeds and a science fair at the Leeds City Museum. A number of self-led trails are also in place for you to embark on, including a Leeds City Centre maths trail and a 'walk back in time' geology trail around Roundhay Park.

All public events will take place between Saturday 16 March and Saturday 23 March.

To see the full programme of public events and for booking information, please head to the Festival of Science website.
