Life Science Centre is a charity and we rely on the generous support of other organisations to help us fund Maker Faire UK. So as much as we love it, we can’t commit to a 2019 event. If and when we are in a position to host Maker Faire UK again, we’ll let everyone know. If you want to be amongst the first to find out, please sign up to e-news:


Maker Faire UK is the greatest show (and tell) on Earth! Taking place at Life Science Centre in Newcastle, it’s a two-day family-friendly festival of invention and creativity.

It brings together over 300 hackers, crafters, coders, DIYers and garden shed inventors from across the globe – people who love to make stuff and who want to share their passion with the public.

It’s really great fun for adults and kids alike, with all sorts of different things to try your hand at from traditional crafts to hi-tech hacks. The atmosphere is one of collaboration, sharing and experimenting, where you’ll try new things, deepen existing knowledge and have loads of fun! Be prepared to be inspired. Don’t be afraid to get stuck in!
