*** We're so pleased the interest in The Art of Science has been really high! The pre-book tickets are now sold out BUT we will be accepting walk-ups on the night. You may have to wait a little longer to get in if the event is very busy, particularly at the beginning of the event around 7pm - 8pm.***

Get ready for an evening of artistic activities and scientific endeavours in this special after-hours event at the Millennium Gallery – dedicated to the prettiest pathogens, the brightest bacteria, the finest fossils, and the most magnificent minerals. There will be a whole host of hands-on activities, interactive experiences, lightning talks, a pay bar and cake!

  • Hear about the invisible predators of the microbial world and take a close-up view of some of the world’s most beautiful but lethal bacteria in the series of lightening talks.
  • Reinvent life drawing by using different coloured microorganisms to ‘paint’ onto agar.
  • Get creative in drop-in activities: use sculpture to recreate microbial communities, learn to knit your own synthetic pathogen, give creative writing a go, and use pastels to recreate what you see down the microscope.
  • Walk through the blackout chamber and admire the glow of luminescent bacteria.
  • Get hands on with natural history collection objects and take a mini tour of the Ruskin Gallery.
  • Explore the pop-up exhibition and see the aesthetic side of the latest science research.

This event is a collaboration between Sheffield Hallam University and Sheffield Museums Trust. It has been made possible thanks to funding from the Society for Applied Microbiology.

Admission for this event is 16+ only.

Sheffield Museums Lates are a night out with a difference. These after-hours special events are a place where adults can explore, enjoy, and be entertained. Lates span a wide range of themes and topics, bringing together activities, talks, workshops, and a pay bar. Try something new, have fun, and experience an alternative night out at the museum.
