By Raspberry Jim,

 

Techniquest’s exciting After Hours events are making an “unforgettable” return to Cardiff with time travelling fun and a live escape room set to thrill visitors.

The popular over 18s events, which allow visitors to explore the science centre at night, are making a comeback in October with an exciting line-up of evenings already announced.

On October 17, After Hours will return by delving into the futuristic world of science and technology with its highly anticipated After Hours: Into the Future night.

The evening will immerse visitors in emerging technologies and cutting-edge virtual reality and augmented reality experiences, allowing them to get a realistic glimpse into the future.

Then in December, Techniquest will be transformed into an escape room unlike any other. On December 5, Techniquest will join forces with Breakout Cardiff for the intriguing After Hours: Codebreaker event, which will challenge visitors to crack codes, unravel mysteries, and collect clues as part of the exciting evening.

In the new year, the science centre is taking a dip in the deep with its After Hours: Under the Sea evening on February 7. Exploring the wonder of the sea, visitors will be diving into ways that they can help the world’s oceans.

Techniquest CEO Lesley Kirkpatrick said visitors were in for an “unforgettable” new line-up of After Hours events, which have been sponsored once again by Admiral.

Mrs Kirkpatrick said: “We’re delighted to be working alongside Admiral for our brand-new season of After Hours events and are thrilled to be receiving their support once again this year.

“We’re constantly working to make science as accessible and fun for everyone. Our After Hours events aim to do just that, offering a combination of both learning and socialising in a relaxed format. We hope to continue the success of previous After Hours events this coming autumn.”

All After Hours events include full use of the venue’s 130 interactive exhibits and access to a fully licensed bar. Visitors will also be able to grab a bite to eat from Cleverchefs, which will be providing themed street food for each event.

Visitors are encouraged to book early to avoid disappointment as tickets are limited. For full booking information please visit – https://www.techniquest.org/plan-your-visit/after-hours/
