Thu 30 June 2022

Please note: this event has now sold out. Please do not come to Techniquest for After Hours unless you have already booked, as we will be unable to admit you entry.

We’re excited to announce the return of our over-18s After Hours sessions!

The Science of Food & Drink is the theme, and on top of being able to get hands-on with over 100 of our exhibits, there’ll be lots of additional activities for you to get stuck into.

To make the most of your evening with us, there will also be a paid bar and a food station on site.

Friends, fun, fantastic food and your favourite tipples on tap — all the perfect ingredients for a great night out!

    We are pleased to be able to offer all of our visitors discounted parking with Q-Park, our preferred parking partner.

    The Q-Park operates the Cardiff Bay car park in Pierhead Street which is around 8 minutes walk from Techniquest.

    We regret that there is no parking on-site at Techniquest.

  •   Who is it for?

    Techniquest is suitable for all ages! We do have special events for certain groups, however — see Toddler Days and Home Educator days.
