Lates: Dreams

Try something new, do something different!

Lates: Dreams

Thursday 22 June, 18.30–21.30

Dreams have long inspired wonder and curiosity. Drawing on the dreamlike quality of our exhibition Poetics of Light: Pinhole Photography, we'll explore the science behind dreaming, looking at how cutting-edge technologies might soon allow us to record and influence dreams, and exploring how pinhole cameras create such enchanting imagery.

About Lates

For one night only, four times a year, we work with scientists and artists from all over the UK to bring brilliant minds together, creating a night out unlike any other. Our adults-only Lates events are upbeat and energetic: there's loads of stuff to do, from live experiments to exclusive talks.

Listen to music, have a laugh and get involved in our unique and creative activities. Then grab some food in our café or a drink in the bar, meet new people and share stories.

Lates is a free event, but booking is recommended, and donations are welcome.

Lates events are suitable for ages 18+.

Upcoming Lates

Lates: Senses

Friday 14 July

Unlock the power of your senses! Join a sensory explosion as we reveal how everyone senses the world differently. How do we extend our senses with the help of science and technology? Can substitution technologies replace or redirect missing senses? This Lates is part of Bradford Science Festival and will accompany the opening of our summer exhibition, Supersenses.

Lates: Space

Thursday 28 September

See the spacecraft that took British astronaut Tim Peake to and from the ISS! The Soyuz TMA-19M spacecraft orbited earth for six months, travelled around 74 million miles and housed more than 30 experiments. We'll learn more about Mission Principia and explore how satellite technology can help us to see and hear into the unknown.

Lates: Gaming

Thursday 9 November

Join the Gaming for Good Movement! After the success of its first year, the Yorkshire Games Festival returns with its very first Lates. From healthcare and rehabilitation, to online shopping and road safety, there’s now an app for almost everything—discover how technology and gaming impact our everyday lives.
