Heritage Show + Tell — Bradford edition

The next Heritage Show + Tell will be hosted by the National Science and Media Museum for a one-off Bradford edition.

Heritage Show + Tell is a chance for people passionate about heritage in Yorkshire to come together and share their work, get feedback on ideas and meet new collaborators.

Everyone welcome: community heritage groups, freelancers, museum professionals, students and academics.

Join us at the National Science and Media Museum for this special edition in Bradford. We will have an optional tour of Wonderlab at 4pm, followed by Heritage Show + Tell from 5pm to 7pm with a programme of short presentations and a chance to network over refreshments.

It is free to attend but booking is essential as places are limited. If you would like to come to the Heritage Show + Tell — Bradford edition, please register by emailing Fiona at ccsmghinfo@leeds.ac.uk. Please indicate if you would also like to book a place on the tour.

Wonderlab is an experiential science gallery designed to let children experiment like kids, and make adults feel like kids. Come and hear music through your teeth, dance in the musical tunnel, and see the solar system in 360 degree satellite image projection. Also including a rare opportunity to see some show-stopping experiments from our live science shows!
