From a library of fake news to an exploration of the human voice, this year's Manchester Science Festival promises to be an absolute treat.

The annual festival is produced by the Museum of Science and Industry and takes place from October 19 - 29.

With more than 100 events at a variety of venues across Greater Manchester, it's one of the most bold, creative and ambitious science festivals in the UK.

Museum director Sally MacDonald said:

Created with our valued partners from across Greater Manchester and beyond, this annual festival is a fantastic platform to test out new ideas in science communication and offers opportunities for audiences of all ages to explore science in the most creative, inspiring ways.”

– Museum director Sally MacDonald.

Headlining the festival is Robots, an exhibition exploring humanity’s 500-year quest to recreate ourselves in mechanised form.

Also included is a spooky Halloween science-themed family rave and hip hop science raps.
