Chester is getting its own Makefest!

On Sunday 3 February 11am-3pm, Storyhouse is being taken over by Makefest – a family-friendly day of STEM, digital and creative activities. The building will be filled with dozens of activities that will be fun, hands-on and will encourage learning and play. This includes coding, 3D printing, micro:bit, Minecraft, augmented reality and much more to be announced soon.

This a free, drop-in event (you don’t need tickets). Just come along and get involved!
This event is open to everyone. Our recommended age is 6-12years, but you know your child best.

If you’d like to attend Makefest to deliver a fun, hands-on workshop, either to represent an organisation/group or individually, please contact liam.cookson@storyhouse.com with details of what you’d like to do, including details of the space and equipment you’d require us to provide.
