Enjoy a night out surrounded by the very best food available to try and buy. An evening dedicated to eating, drinking, learning and discovering something new and exciting around every corner.


The Centre will be filled with a market of food stalls, workshops, talks, demonstrations, experiments, music and an outdoor food court.

If you are looking for something different on a Saturday night, then this is the antidote to the mundane and boring.


Come and join us for a Taste of Science and discover your love of food and the science behind why you love it.


LIVE MUSIC
Dance the night away under our giant rockets.

Hanzo are a garage rock 'n' roll trio from Warwickshire. The band take influences from 50s Rockabilly and 60s Surf and stir them up with modern fuzz heavy tones often compared to Queens of the Stone Age. Trying not to be tied to one genre they have carved out an original sound which keeps evolving as the band grow but is still rooted in the classic sounds the band are influenced by.

"Songs can go from having a tom heavy rockabilly beat with surf twang and then spiral in to a more straight up rock jam session" Hellacious Harmonies 2016

"I don't even know where to start - I seriously loved every track on this CD - it was sweet as a nut to listen to - each song just grabbed me by the scruff of my neck and force fed me dirty rockabilly awesomeness…" Rock Reviews 2016
