Crick Late Patterns

This event is now fully booked. If you didn't manage to book tickets, don't worry, some of the activities will be repeated at the Discovery Day on Saturday 23 June. 

Join us for a packed evening of pop-up science and explore the kaleidoscopic mix of patterns studied at the Francis Crick Institute. Why do patterns exist in biology, what do they look like and how are Crick scientists making sense of them? Find out through an enticing line-up of talks and hands-on activities from our scientists, plus music, food and drink.

Take a look at the full programme here.

The event is free but booking is essential. It is suitable for adults. Book tickets here

Crick Lates are themed evening events that give you the chance to delve into many areas of Crick research. From getting hands-on with state-of-the-art laboratory equipment, to crafting activities and inspiring talks, there's something for everyone, no matter how much science you know.
