The event will be run by 'Fun Science' to celebrate the launch of their new West Lancs. Branch, which runs science themed birthday parties, shows, workshops and holiday clubs across North Liverpool, Wigan, Chorley, Southport, Ormskirk, Skelmersdale, St Helens and surrounding areas.

Activities on offer included slime making, sherbet making, hair raising on a Van de Graaff generator and a plasma ball.
