Family Day: Explore, Discover, Experiment

Saturday 14 September 2019: 10am–5pm

University of Warwick Central Campus

Join us at our extra-special Family Day: a jam-packed day of discovery and exploration for all the family as we celebrate hosting the British Science Festival. Our campus will be filled with exciting events and activities from our own departments, local companies and charities!

To help you plan your day we've split our activities into:

  • Shows - watch live performances
  • Workshops - get hands-on in smaller sessions
  • Stalls - turn up and 'have a go' activities dotted around the campus

We've added some themes to help you find the events you're most interested in - look out for:

All about me All about me Move it Move it Ancient Worlds Ancient worlds Make it Make it

Dinosaurs Dinosaurs Play it Play it Our Planet Our planer Space Space

Take a look through our programme using the links below to see what's on offer. Some events require booking, but everything is completely free to attend and there's plenty to keep the whole family entertained if you haven't been able to book tickets for shows/ workshops. Lots of our events have now sold out, but we will also have some tickets available at the Family Day box offices on the day for all events.

As well as the events and activities, we'll also be hosting our ever-popular Food Market, with local companies serving freshly cooked tasty treats. You'll also find plenty of cafes around campus, or feel free to bring your own picnic and snacks to keep energy levels topped up throughout the day.

We can't wait to see you!

Please note shows and workshops are selling out quickly so please book today to avoid disappointment!
If you have missed out on advance tickets then don't worry! A limited number of tickets for all shows and workshops will be released on the day and available from Family Day Box Office on campus. There is also loads to do that doesn't require booking at all - all of the activity listed under Stalls you can just drop in to, and many of our shows don't require booking as they're outside.
