Grand Day Out

Bradford Industrial Museum

Mon 1 May 2017

The Grand Day Out is held on the 1st May Monday Bank Holiday and this year's theme will be the science in everyday life.

Visitors can come and see science experiments being carried out in the main building by Sublime Science, as well as watch an animal biology demonstration in our Weaving Gallery, take part in experiments and trial activities through the building themed around our permanent exhibits.

All presentations are free but some are limited seating capacity so we are operating a first come first served system. Please note children will be seated on the carpet, there are limited seats for adults.
