Discovery Museum has received a message from the year 2152. Our future friends have forgotten how to have fun and need your help. Together, let's build a giant futuristic fun fair for them at the museum.

Help us to design a rollercoaster that takes you into space, decorate a dodgem car that can fly or create a candy floss stall where the sweet treats taste of whatever you imagine.

Unfolding Theatre and Designer, Molly Barrett will help you turn your wildest ideas into a fun fair that takes over Discovery Museum.

Combine this creative, fun session with your last chance to see the popular related exhibition, All the Fun of the Fair, closing Sunday 4 March.

This event is part of PLAY+INVENT, Discovery Museum's family programme for budding inventors, designers and makers!
