External Event - 12th Mar 2019

Wylam Brewery, Exhibition Park, Newcastle Upon Tyne, NE2 4PZ

Palace of Science is an annual science festival held on the 12th March at Wylam Brewery in Exhibition Park, Newcastle-upon-Tyne. It is a celebration of scientific research and outreach happening throughout the North East.

The central hall of Wylam Brewery is transformed into a show case of science, with various exhibitors setting up shop to demonstrate some of the wonders in their scientific field. New for Palace of Science 2019 is “Scientist Corner”, where you can go to meet scientists who will be giving short talks about their research at various times during the event.

The event is held in a brewery so the bar will be open throughout the night for you to purchase some of Wylam’s fantastic beers (other drinks, including soft drinks, will be available). Food will also be available to purchase.

This event is a joint venture between the Institute of Neuroscience at Newcastle University, British Science Association, and the Institute of Physics.
