Be Curious

Be Curious is the University’s annual research open event, which aims to showcase how research here at Leeds is making a world of difference to people’s lives.

On Saturday 7 May 2022, 10am–4pm, we invite you to find out more about the world-changing research taking place at the University of Leeds, with a day of free, fun activities suitable for all the family!

Design, imagine, make, do, glue, explore and more, with over 35 interactive stalls and activities, a hands-on Tinker Space, Maker Kits, performances, workshops, tours and more!

We’ll also be sharing exciting short videos online that encourage you to ‘be curious’ about research happening here at Leeds.

There’s no need to book and all age groups are welcome.

We encourage visitors to travel to Be Curious via foot or public transport where possible. The University is just a short walk from Leeds City Centre, or accessible by a number of bus routes, including 1, 6, 28, 56 and 97, which all stop outside the Parkinson Building.

Parking is available in the multi-story car park on campus, payable by debit or credit card on exiting.
