Palace of Science: A beer meets science festival
When should I arrive? Tuesday 12th March, 5pm-11pm
Where should I go? Wylam Brewery, Exhibition Park, Newcastle
Details, I need details!
At the event, the central hall of Wylam Brewery is transformed into a show case of science, with various exhibitors setting up shop to demonstrate some of the wonders in their scientific field. New for Palace of Science 2019 is “Scientist Corner”, where you can go to meet scientists who will be giving short talks about their research at various times during the event. Of course, 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.
Look into the future….
