Make, investigate and celebrate Christmas at Life with all the family.

Included in your science centre ticket are festive-themed Science Theatre shows, making Christmas decorations, coding Christmas tree light patterns and investigating the properties of fake snow.

Visitors can even make their own ink to write a letter to Santa and be dazzled at Science busking Christmas demonstrations. (Some activities are for ages 7+ only).

The new Space Zone will show video messages, recorded by astronauts as they spent the holidays on the International Space Station!

Extra activities in Times Square (additional costs apply):

Get your skates on and head to the hugely popular outdoor ice rink. Booking is essential if you would like to skate on Christmas Eve or New Year’s Eve as we expect these dates to sell out fast! Go to www.life.org.uk to book.

Christmas wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Santa’s Grotto in Times Square! Mr Claus will be here every weekend in December, as well as Monday 23 December.

When: 9 November – 5 January 2020. (Ice rink open until 23 February 2020)


International Centre for Life

Science in the 21st century is proving to be fast moving, potentially life-enhancing and certainly controversial. Life has grown out of a desire to deliver a science centre for the North East that is forward looking and seeks to offer these leading edge ideas in a form that is easily accessible to everyone.
