Event description

Description

On the third Saturday of every month, join us at the Wellcome Genome Campus. Each month there is an afternoon of activity, and something fun for everyone! Visit Curious Nature, our brand-new, family-friendly exhibition, exploring how genomics is helping us to understand our natural world. You can also be one of the first visitors into Open Lab, an exciting new space to discover DNA sequencing.

There will be our regular drop-in activities and the chance to take a tour of the campus to discover its history and the cutting-edge research that happens today.

Open Saturdays are FREE for everyone but booking is required. Sign up here!


Please note: in March and July Open Saturday will be on 4th Saturday of the month.


What are my transport/parking options for 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 free 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 3pm, and the event ends at 3:30pm. The final tour of the campus will depart at 2:30.

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?

The event cafe will be open, selling a range of drinks and small snacks. You are welcome to bring a packed lunch with you too.

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
