Adults take over Life Science Centre on the last Thursday night of every month. With no kids around, they can be bolder and more daring with the workshops and activities on offer. What's happening in 2020?

In late 2019, Life Science Centre's After Hours events activities included a 15-minute sample of Pink Floyd’s The Wall set to visuals in the planetarium, including the 1979 Christmas number one single; origami gift-wrapping; and the invitation to warm your hands with methane fire! Here's a taste of what's to come in 2020 with details of events for January - April.
