What is it?
The At-Bristol Science Centre is celebrating the opening of its new Food! exhibition with a free celebratory event on Saturday 26th July in Millennium Square. From 11am to 3pm there will be a whole host of fun activities.
The main feature of the event will be a World Record attempt, making the longest string of popcorn over 24 hours. The aim is to beat the current record, set in Cincinnati, USA, of 227 metres. At-Bristol are hoping lots of people will head along to Millennium Square to help make metre-long lengths that can be strung together. The record attempt will start at 2pm on Friday 25th July, so anyone that can go along and help will be most welcome.
On the Saturday the second of the edible planters will be sown with vegetables, herbs and fruit; in collaboration with Almondsbury Garden Centre and Incredible Edible Bristol. This urban allotment is a community project, open for everyone to help with. Equipment is provided for those who wish to get green-fingered.
Alongside this there will be science busking demonstrations from At-Bristol’s Live Science team, music from the Bristol Samba band throughout the event and lots of fantastic food from Bristol Beats. Expect food from the likes of American Kitchen, Bertha’s Pizza, Pastilla House, Rib Street and Viet Veet.
At-Bristol will be opening their doors to the Redcliffe community for the weekend as part of their community weekend initiatives, making science accessible to all. So far they have had very successful weekends with the Southmead and Hartcliffe areas of the city and this time it’s a chance for people in Redcliffe to go along for free.
