Palace of Science Festival 2019

Palace of Science Festival 2019

Tuesday 12th March 2019 from 17:00pm to 23:00pm

Wylam Brewery - Newcastle Upon Tyne
Exhibition Park, Newcastle, NE2 4PZ

This event sees the central hall of Wylam Brewery transformed into a show case of science, with various exhibitors setting up shop to demonstrate some of the wonders in their scientific field. In addition to the exhibitor stands, previous years have seen the hall filled with science buskers and art installations that communicate science through artist-scientist collaborations.

Palace of Science isn’t all about the science, it’s approximately 10% about the beer! During the event the bar will be open all night for you to sample some of Wylam’s fantastic beers (other alcohols are available, as are soft drinks). Food will also be available.

Please note that this event has already taken place on 12/03/2019

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
