BLACK holes, botany and meteorology are all coming to Otley.

The town’s 2019 Science Festival runs from Monday, November 11 to Saturday, November 16 and features a programme packed with talks and experiments.

Attractions will include a Science Cafe where experts will discuss sustainable cities, memory and The Analogue Moon while Paul Hardaker, Chief Executive of the Institute of Physics, will be giving a talk on weather forecasting and scientific careers. Botanist James Wong, meanwhile, will consider the nutritional quality of our food.

The festival’s concluding day will feature a free 10am to 4pm Science Fair which this year will involve two more venues, Otley Library and the Parish Church, as well as the Courthouse.

A planetarium will be providing free shows at the church from 10am to 4pm while visitors to the library will be able to try coding. For more details visit
