The Big Bang is coming to Sutton!
Festival week starts on Monday, 9th July with a series of events being hosted in and around Sutton town centre. These events include mixology classes, Science Speakeasy and a Women in Science Gallery. The schedule will be updated shortly so check back on this page for further information.
The festival week culminates in a schools focussed Big Bang fair, hosted every year at Sutton Grammar School. The fair is open to schools from inside and outside of Sutton, to promote STEM learning with a variety of interactive activities and attractions, inspiring the next generation of scientist and engineers. Speak to your child’s school and make sure they are involved!
The Big Bang has been going on for a few years now, with the aim of connecting schools around a common theme. This year is somewhat different, however. For the first time, Sutton town centre will be taking exhibitors from the school festival, adding some bigger science and engineering focussed attractions and delivering the BIG BANG SUTTON Science Festival on the High Street and into Manor Park.
