Calling all time travellers, music lovers, and aspiring astronauts - Einsteins Garden has so much in store for you with this years theme – the FUTURE!

Star Wars fans can begin their training as Jedi Knights with The Science of Star Wars, a show that takes a closer look at the weird weapons and spaceships from a galaxy far, far away.

Astronaut life hacks (from planet hopping to peeing in spacesuits) will be shared during an interactive performance of Lonely Planet’s award-winning kids book How To Be A Space Explorer. Fancy experiencing Life On Mars, an intergalactic game show from Rising Ape Collective that places you in the middle of a martian colony. For explorers aged 3+ who want to design future artefacts in lego and present them to a board of friendly dragons then Future Backwards Pursuit await.
Music lovers do you want to create new sounds? gloves create melodies when their wearers move their hands through the air, turning basic human energy into an epic soundscape. The gloves’ developers, Chagall and Adam Stark, will show off their invention in an eye-opening electronic music performance. Solarference, a duo who combine traditional folk music with never-before-heard electro sounds to create an awe-inspiring fusion of ancient and modern. My Other Future is a comedy-based discussion, which aims to poke fun at common visions of the future.

Discover metaphysical mischief in Josh Coates’ Particles, futuristic stand-up from UCL’s top science researchers in Bright Club, hands-on hacking with The Mad Hacker’s Tea Party and a Science Ceilidh that explains baffling biology and crackpot chemistry through the medium of Gaelic dance.
