Cutting-edge audiovisual pioneers Marshmallow Laser Feast bring their latest out-of-this-world light show, Distortions in Spacetime, to the 12th Manchester Science Festival at the Science and Industry Museum. Famous for their mind-boggling light sculptures, 3-D projections and sparkly drone effects, MLF are creating the surround sound and light version of a spacetime singularity, aka a black hole, slap bang in the middle of the museum’s historic 1830 Warehouse. Promising to be out of this world, it’s perhaps also an out-of-body experience: get ready to be stretched, squashed and, yes, “spaghettified” by the immersive sensory creation. Expect a fun way – whatever your age – to play among the stars and journey through the depths of space as the mysteries of the universe unravel around you. Open to everyone (7+) 10am to 5pm, there are special after-hours openings 6pm-9pm for over 18s Thursday 18 to Sunday 21 October and Wednesday 24 to Sunday 28 October. Tickets on sale from Monday 15 October.

Thu 18 – Sun 28 Oct, Science and Industry Museum, Liverpool Road, Castlefield, Manchester, M3 4FP, Tel: 0161 832 2244, times vary, free,
