This is where we are headed next weekend.
It’s held at UCLan, in Preston. It’s free. There is plenty to do on the day; a drop-in science showfloor, an emergency zone including a fire engine (Leo will love that), workshops in forensic science, emergency medicine, trauma theatre…and a daredevil extreme sports stunt show. Plus if you haven’t booked onto the lectures, you can pick up tickets in the stand-by queues.
This year they’ve made an effort to include more activities for younger kids. And there are free lockers, and a pram park, and baby changing. And the canteen is open all day for lunch too.
And free parking too. What’s not to like?
