£8.00, £10 on the door, 20% discount for Life Annual Pass holders.

Sick of the sofa? Tired of the pub? Explore Life Science Centre after hours and do things that you can’t do anywhere else.

Friday Night Life is for adults who fancy something quirky and different. Learn stuff, be inspired, have fun, meet old friends and make new ones.

Although every Friday Night Life is slightly different, there are some things you can expect every time: a unique show in the planetarium (one of the most intimate and amazing spaces in the region) and at least one other activity you wouldn’t get to experience anywhere else – guaranteed! This could be a workshop, a talk or show or a chance to do an experiment. Have a drink at the bar and enjoy the music.

Limited capacity – early booking advised.

Excludes Animal Inside Out.

What you can enjoy on 29 July:

  • Why do we do THAT? Jon Wood delves into our intriguing brains without resorting to a hackshaw. Jon says “Exploring several aspects of psychology lets us peek at what our brains are doing when we are not paying attention. Science explains when I’m brilliant at sport, how I learned maths and why I can never play poker. If all goes to plan, you’ll never trust your brain again!” Note – this replaces the advertised show by Helen Keen who can no longer join us. We do hope to have Helen back soon, and a big ‘thanks chum’ to Jon for stepping in!
  • Sci-fi Planetarium: a showcase of science fiction images and short sci-fi films from new film makers in Life’s planetarium.
  • Don a lab coat and release your inner scientist in the Experiment Zone.
  • Experiment on yourself and others in the Brain Zone.
  • Paid bar and DJ.

Please note that Animal Inside Out will be closed during the Friday Night Life event.
