University of Manchester Community Festival has moved online, but there’s still plenty to do whether you are young or old, interested in science or art, want to gets hands-on and have fun or just listen to some fascinating stories.

Like in previous years, the University of Manchester Community Festival ‘s programme is fantastic for families with creative sessions for under-5s, sculpture classes as well as virtual tours of Manchester Museum‘s Vivarium and sound demonstrations.

There’s also plenty for adults too including Memories of Manchester: Secrets of Student Life which looks across almost 200 years of history, showcasing never-before-seen objects that shine a light on student life in the city. Chocaholics Guide to the World and Secrets of Biomaterials, is a virtual demonstration investigating the internal structure of chocolate bars and Read All About It! tells the 200-year story of The Guardian newspaper’s origins right here in Manchester.
