Knowle West residents will be welcomed for free at a special ‘Hello’ open weekend in At-Bristol Science Centre on 23 and 24 September.

The event is for visitors who live in Knowle West or people with children who go to school in this area. They must have a valid flyer – available from schools, children’s centres and local venues.

The Centre says all ages are welcome to join in – with over 250 interactive exhibits and hands-on activities – from creating a shadow theatre to making a giant bubble.

There will also be story-telling, live science shows – and visitors will also be able to gaze at the stars inside the Planetarium for a small additional fee.

At-Bristol spokesperson Jen Forster said: “As an educational charity, our mission is to “make science accessible to all”, and as part of that, we have a Community Engagement Programme, and run six free ‘Hello’ open weekends a year, each one focusing on a different area of Bristol…”

At-Bristol will also be distributing £4 tickets so people can come back to the science centre for another visit at a more affordable price

The event runs from 10am – 6pm on both Saturday and Sunday. For more information visit:
