Child-free fun!

W5 Late is a strictly adults-only, after-hours evening of interactive fun at Northern Ireland’s award-winning science and discovery centre. 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.

Following a major £5 million 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 your friends.

Our fully licensed bar will also be available where you can enjoy a cold glass of beer or wine after an evening of adventure.

Kicking off on Thursday 21st July 2022 and running for four weeks, adults can let loose and unleash their inner child at a series of quirky themed events:

21 July: House of Games

28 July: World of Illusion

4 August: Destination Animation

11 August: Music at the Centre
