1100x620 W5 Late

W5 Late returns this summer with four fun-filled nights of adult-only interactive fun.

At W5, fun has no age limit but for four nights this summer, there are no kids allowed and grown-ups are given the run of the place!

Typically taking place four times a year, an expanded summer series of W5 Late events will take place over four consecutive Thursdays this summer.

Kicking off on Thursday 21st July 2022 and running for four weeks, adults can let loose and unleash their inner child, as they explore the Reimagined W5, at a series of quirky themed events.

Following a major £5million investment last Autumn, W5’s two reimagined exhibition floors and eight interactive zones, featuring 250+ hands-on exhibits, form the perfect playground for a fun night out with friends.

A fully licensed bar will be available, serving a range of beer and wine.

Tickets cost £15 (plus booking fee) per person for general admission. Additional add-on workshops and experiences will be available for selected events, with further details to follow.
