Lancashire Science Festival- next weekend’s family fun

This is where we are headed next weekend.

Lancashire Science Festival

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?
