The Manchester Science Festival Family Weekender is bringing three days of thought-provoking, hands-on activities to the Science and Industry Museum from Friday 20 until Sunday 22 August.

With a specific focus on the timely topics of climate change and ideas for a better world, the popular Castlefield-based science museum has partnered with CBeebies and CBBC to present an array of colourful events that are designed to get your creative juices flowing – regardless of your age.

In addition to hosting screenings of kids’ favourites Hey Duggee, Blue Peter and Newsround (complete with free activities inspired by each show), the museum will also be joined by presenter and motorbike rider Grace Webb for a one-off live edition of her CBBC show Grace’s Amazing Machines where visitors can learn about some eco-friendly green machines. Spaces for this event are limited, so make sure you add a free ticket to Grace’s Amazing Machines Live to your basket along with your museum admission ticket.

Discover more about recycling, reusing and green-living at drop-in activities throughout the weekend. Join sustainability group Sow The City to explore the cost your dinner has on the environment and find out how much energy is needed to power some of your favourite gadgets with Electricity North West. Museum admission tickets are free but must be booked in advance – to secure yours, follow the booking button below.
