Be Curious

Have you ever wondered what happens in a University? Join us for a day of free, family friendly activities, as part of our Be Curious research open day.

New date:

Saturday 10 October 2020 from 10am to 4pm
Parkinson Building, University of Leeds

Be Curious 2020 has been rescheduled to 10 October 2020. This is due to the hands-on nature of many of the displays and the practical issues this creates in relation to government advice to help contain the spread of coronavirus (covid-19).

Discussions are ongoing to see if one of the highlights – the Deep Ocean Lab event with YouTuber and BBC TV and radio presenter, Greg Foot – can take place on the new date, and those who booked free tickets will be contacted shortly.

Please keep checking this page for more details about the event, including a full list of attractions, a link to download the programme and a map of events.

There’s no need to book – just come along on the day to the Parkinson building between 10am and 4pm. All age groups welcome.
