The University’s very first Open House festival begins today, with a packed programme of free talks, activities and events taking place across the campus over the next two weeks.
Beginning with the Low Carbon Liverpool Debate tonight, a series of topical evening talks will explore some of the big issues and challenges that are never far from the news headlines, such as the European refugee crisis, the upcoming UK general election and Brexit. The series concludes on Thusday, 25 May with a ‘secrets of the universe’ Science in the Snug event featuring particle physicist Professor Tara Shears.
A specially-commissioned art installation created by comic book artist, John Higgins, will light up the exterior of the University’s Victoria Gallery & Museum (VG&M) as part of LightNight celebrations on Friday, 19 May. With food and drink available from the VG&M cafe, a variety of fun pop-up activities suitable for all the family, and the added opportunity to visit the Garstang Museum of Archaeology and to see the famous Liverpool skyline from the best vantage point on campus, it promises to be an unforgettable night.
Then we’re straight back on Saturday, 20 May, for a whole day of family fun, with highlights including free taster sessions at the Sports and Fitness Centre, hands-on science experiments at the Environmental Science Laboratory, campus and city walks and much more.
Pubs and bars across the city are also playing host to informal talks by University researchers from 15-17 May as part of Liverpool’s very first Pint of Science festival.
The Open House programme has already proved extremely popular, with many ticketed events now fully-booked or with only limited places remaining. If you are interested in attending a ticketed event please register as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
