LifeLab is coming!

Join us on 27th and 28th September to make new discoveries

You’re living in a global centre for new discoveries. In our area, right now, people are finding ways to personalise medicine for each patient, they’re measuring how obesity could affect your children, and discovering new ways to help our bodies fight disease and much more.

Friday 27th and Saturday 28th September are your chance to make your own breakthroughs, when LifeLab will transform shopping centres, cafes, bars and public spaces around Ely, Peterborough and Cambridge into discovery zones for all ages. For these two days, the people making these discoveries will be popping up all across the local area to share what they’ve found with you. And the best part is, most of it is free!

There will be activities to appeal to all tastes and ages; whether you like to get hands-on, listen to talks, or enjoy a comedy night, there’s something for you, your friends, and family. Above all, there will be plenty of chance for you to share your opinions and ideas as you chat to the people making exciting discoveries happen.

On Friday 27th September, from 7-9pm, LifeLab will be turning Ely Cathedral into a science wonderland for curious people of all ages. Enjoy a chat with a researcher, hear about the region’s latest life science discoveries, and explore an exciting range of interactive activities. On Saturday 28th September, from 11am-9pm, LifeLab will transform Cross Green by Ely Cathedral into a discovery playground. Get hands-on with a range of biology-based activities with researchers from across Cambridgeshire.
