Travel the globe in a day from Pangea to Antarctica (collecting passport stamps along the way) then blast off into space with over 100 events, workshops, activities and performances for the whole family at Birmingham University’s annual Community Day. The incredible list of attractions includes traditional fairground activities and colourful tents full of interactive talks and insights into magical mysteries like black holes and gravitational waves. Circus performers, kids activities and live music will thrill the crowds with a soft play area, farmers market and street food keeping all ages happy and well fed. Uncover fossils and dinosaurs in the Lapworth Museum of Geology, take a look at the brand new library and sports centre and enjoy a free open day at the beautiful Winterbourne House and botanic Gardens. For space geeks and science lovers the Great Hall will be the star of the show with a Planetarium exploring the beauty of the night sky – in the middle of the day. A world of wonder – and some.
