Sick of the sofa? Tired of the pub? Explore Life Science Centre after hours and do things that you can’t do anywhere else.

Friday Night Life is for adults who fancy something quirky and different. Learn stuff, be inspired, have fun, meet old friends and make new ones.

Although every Friday Night Life is slightly different, there are some things you can expect every time: a unique show in the planetarium (one of the most intimate and amazing spaces in the region) and at least one other activity you wouldn’t get to experience anywhere else – guaranteed! This could be a workshop, a talk or show or a chance to do an experiment. Have a drink at the bar and enjoy the music. There's also the option to pre-book dinner for the night - see below for details.

Limited capacity – early booking advised.

What you can enjoy on 27 January:

  • Life’s planetarium could just be the most fitting venue ever to enjoy Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon. A unique immersive audio-visual interpretation of one of the best albums ever. What’s not to like?
  • How does nutrition affect the brain? Can food be smart and super? Nutritionist Carole Marshall, from Northumbria University, explores the link between what you eat and how you feel in ‘Good Food, Good Mood’.
  • Speaking of good food – pre-book your dinner. See below for details.
  • FameLab, is seeking out new and exciting talent (it’s like The X Factor for science communication). Friday Night Life visitors can drop into the regional heats - the search is on for the new voices of science communication.
  • Don a lab coat and release your inner scientist in the Experiment Zone.
  • Experiment on yourself and others in the Brain Zone.
  • Paid bar.
