The event has become one of the city’s biggest free family-friendly events.

Held at the University of Central Lancashire there’s two days dedicated to school visits and then on Saturday 29 June it opens up to the public.

Shows and events take place across the university campus from 9am tp 5pm.

Science Festival director Dr Liz Granger said: “This is our eighth year and it’s going to be bigger and better than ever.

“We’ve got such a great selection of science, technology, engineering and maths events taking place with shows, workshops and drop-in activities that appeal to all ages.

“Last year 20,000 people attended our Preston Campus or took part in a roadshow event.

“Those figures show the mass appeal of a free, annual educational festival in the North West and highlight why it’s fast becoming a not to be missed event for everyone.”
