Curious? festival at King's Cross

23 July 2016

Location: King's Cross

Science buskers

 

 

The Crick's team of science buskers will be taking part in Curious? festival this Saturday from 12-4pm. Our science buskers are trained volunteers who engage and entertain the public through science-inspired tricks and games. They'll be roving around Granary Square and bringing festival-goers amazing insights into the Crick's research on neuroscience, the immune system and more.

Powered by the King's Cross Knowledge Quarter, Curious? is London's biggest festival of knowledge and learning. A fusion of science, art and culture, it promises to be "a day of mind-expanding, future-focused fun".

The free festival will celebrate King's Cross' position as London's gateway to 73 different knowledge organisations, from sectors as diverse as science, culture, research, media and academia, all of which are located within one-mile of King's Cross.

Jenny Jopson, the Crick's Public Engagement Manager, said, "This is a great opportunity to connect audiences with Crick science in a fun and playful way. We're looking forward to being part of this exciting event alongside our Knowledge Quarter partners."

Other Knowledge Quarter partners involved include the British Library, the Wellcome Trust, Central Saint Martins, the Institute of Physics, SOAS, the Royal Veterinary College, Poet in the City, The Place, the Foundling Museum, the London Sinfonietta orchestra, the House of Illustration, the School of Life and the Royal College of Physicians.

To top it all off there will be street food on offer plus free wine-tasting at the German Gymnasium. So if you see any of our buskers around King's Cross then do say hello!
