From oozing bubbles of dry ice to exploring the universe in an inflatable planetarium, May Fest returns to University Park on Saturday May 18.
The community event brings the University and our friends together for a free, highly interactive day for all ages.
The fun starts at 11am and runs until 5.30pm. Try and arrive early — there’s a lot to pack in.
One of the most popular attractions, but not for the faint-hearted, will again be the thunder and lightning show, when the power of chemical energy is unleashed. Expect loud bangs and plenty of smoke!
Pick up the free May Fest programme for all you’ll need to plan your day, including maps, information on parking, food and refreshments. Some activities require booking on the day. The programme can be downloaded at http://nott.ac.uk/fest2013
Jacqui Storey, Skills Sharing and Knowledge Exchange Manager, Community Partnerships, said: “This is the 5th May Fest and each year we have seen more and more visitors enjoying an ever increasing number of activities.
“It’s a great opportunity for the University and the community to come together and learn more about each other. Engaging with the public is one of the University’s key objectives and May Fest does much to build on this and leads to new and informative partnerships.”
