Join us for a very special Halloween Late at the Millennium Gallery as we explore the science of sci-fi.

Discover that truth can be stranger than fiction...

  • It’s the end of the world and Tom Cruise isn't coming to save you... Join us for a series of talks presented by various experts exploring the underlying science of science fictional worlds, from Armageddon to Jurassic Park
  • We’ll be exposing the science of world-ending microbiology. Whether it's the alien bacterium in the Andromeda Strain, or the global plagues in Contagion and Shaun of the Dead, plagues are often at the heart of science fiction, but what is the science behind the fiction? Antimicrobial resistance is already being considered one of the greatest threats to global public health – can you save yourself…?
  • Space: The Final Frontier - can you dock the space station or build a moon lander fit for humans? We’ll be challenging you to become astronauts and work on your team building skills
  • Superhero Supercells - our scientists will be exploring the superheroes of the human body – supercells
  • B-Movie Mayhem - we’ll be showing a host of classic B Movie Sci-Fi shorts throughout the event 

There will be a whole host of interactive experiences, music and a pay bar. Dress in your best sci-fi cosplay and expect an evening that’s out of this world.

Admission for this event is 18+ only.
