Discover science and arts for free - Innovate Guildford is back on 4 March at G Live

Our free science and arts festival, Innovate Guildford, is back for a second year on Saturday 4 March.

From Supermassive Games to Surrey Satellite Technology, Pirbright Institute to the Planetarium, Minecraft to McLaren, there's something for everyone at Innovate Guildford 2017!

The event takes place at G Live on Saturday 4 March from 10am until 5pm. Innovate Guildford 2017 is bigger and better, with the whole of G Live available for all ages to enjoy inspiring things to see, do and experience.

Explore the four zones: Engineering, One Health, Digital Media and Future Living, experience interactive performances and hear inspiring speakers, including leading gaming pioneer Peter Molyneux and animal health pioneer Professor Nick Bacon.

Theatre, music and comedy will feature throughout the day, with everything from how technology might have affected Shakespeare's plays to risky recycling and photographic secrets.

Cllr Paul Spooner, Leader of Guildford Borough Council, says: "Innovate Guildford is back and it's better than ever! Amazing things are made in Guildford and our borough is a real centre for innovation. This is a great chance to come and meet local companies at the heart of new technology, join in our workshops or even try a Virtual Reality game. And best of all, it's completely free, so come along and get inspired."

The Mayor of Guildford, Cllr Gordon Jackson adds: "The creative minds behind Science and Arts in and around Guildford are world-class, and they want to talk to you. My mayoral theme is 'Inspiring Tomorrow's Solutions Today' and Innovate Guildford demonstrates this perfectly, particularly for young people exploring their potential. Be part of it all, imagine your future and give your brain a great day out!"
