About this Event

Ever fancied hunting for the stars, tickling a robot or fighting killer fungus? Ever wondered how strong chocolate is, how the nervous system works or wanted to share your Manchester memories?

Our free Community Festival is jam-packed with fun activities for all the family. Whether you want to get hands-on or just want to listen to some fascinating stories and watch live performances, we’ve got it covered. We're showcasing some world-changing discoveries across the sciences, medicine and the arts and adding in a healthy dose of play - and you get to be a part of it!

On 10 June 2023 we’re inviting you and all our friends and neighbours in the local community to go behind the scenes of the University and discover the diverse and exciting work taking place here. The Community Festival has something for everyone.

So come and join us for a free fun-filled day of hands-on science activities and experiments, creative arts and performances, sporting challenges, face-painting, a helter-skelter, the chance to meet with our staff, students and community partners...and much, much more!

As part of the programme you can attend free drop-in performances including Music is in our DNA, join us on a Heritage tour of the campus and take part in story time with children from Huaxia Chinese School.
