Event details


11am - 5pm 

Come and join us for a weekend of puzzles, problem-solving and experimental gaming. 

GameLab has more than 40 FREE activities taking place over the weekend for all ages.

Play around with everything from virtual reality to eSport, have a go at coding drones and see first-hand how cutting-edge research in science, tech and media is changing the world. GameLab is delivered in collaboration with VR Manchester. 

As part of GameLab you can step inside the MicrobiHome and discover how our own biological matter is shaped by the other bacteria we host. We are not 100% human and we need to understand what's going on with the other DNA we host, to ensure we can solve some of our biggest health risks.
