Child at fringe event in mock lab

Make a date with an evening of discovery 

Imperial Fringe

Explore the fun, creative and perhaps unexpected side of science with a free evening of discovery at one of our Imperial Fringe events. Join us as our scientists and their ground-breaking research take a break from the lab for a night of hands-on demos, crafty workshops, interactive experiments and inspiring talks for all ages to enjoy.

 Last year’s year 5 Fringe events saw over 3000 people join us to meet our researchers and learn all about their work.

 You can get a better of idea of what to expect from an Imperial Fringe with reports on previous Fringes below.
