Event description

Description

On the third Saturday of every month join us for an afternoon of exploration, with hands-on science activities and a tour of the Wellcome Genome Campus. We're open 12-2:30pm, and you can drop in at any time between 12 and 2pm.

Hidden Lives: a story of discovery is our current exhibition. It features archaeological artefacts discovered at the Wellcome Genome Campus, including ancient human remains – some of which have had their genome sequenced. Developed in partnership with campus scientists and archaeologists, the exhibition explores what we can discover about the past from the things left behind, and how archaeology and DNA analysis can be used to help us better understand our past but also more about ourselves. Saturday 20th January is the last chance to see this exhibition!

Tours of the Wellcome Genome Campus last about an hour and are indoors and outside. They are a great way to discover more about the history of the campus and the cutting-edge research happening today. Tours are filled on a first-come-first-served basis, and are offered at: 12:15pm, 12:30pm and 1:15pm.


What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

The Wellcome Genome Campus is situated about 10 miles south of Cambridge. Driving or cycling to the Campus is the easiest way to reach us. Whittlesford Parkway and Great Chesterford train stations are both about 2 miles from the Campus but have limited facilities (neither has a taxi rank). There is plenty of parking at the Wellcome Genome Campus.

When should I arrive?

The event is drop-in, and you can arrive at a time to suit you. Last admission to the campus is 2pm, and the event ends at 2:30pm.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No you don't need to bring your ticket, as your name will be on our attendee list at the entrance.

Are refreshments available?

Yes, a selection of teas, coffee, soft and alcoholic drinks and some snacks are available to purchase from our event cafe.

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

If you have any questions about this event, or our work in general, please email engage@wellcomegenomecampus.org
